We have a settlement agent on our LSP that uses another company for recording and in some instances a mobile notary. The fees are listed as paid to the final payee. My question is when the CD is issued, are these fees considered "shopped for" or not "shopped for".
They chose the settlement agent, who chose the other vendors. The consumer had no choice in the matter. Please let me know how you are treating this. Thank you!
