California Home Seller Closing Costs Overcharging

Some home sellers in California are discovering that they have been overcharged for closing costs, including for the amounts they paid for Natural Hazard Disclosure (NHD) reports for their properties.

Sellers complain that they are surprised to learn that their realtors are significantly marking up the costs of NHD reports and/or other charges and then pocketing the difference between what the sellers pay and the true costs of the reports/charges.

Though the NHD report costs can be small compared to the large amounts involved in closing costs overall, these practices are illegal and result in millions of dollars in illegal upcharges every year by the offending NHD report companies and realtors, at the expense of sellers.
