Disbursements are additional to settlement fees and are out of pocket expenses necessarily incurred by the settlement agent in the process of settling the property, over which the settlement agent has little control. In all cases disbursements are not marked up and are fully disclosed and detailed on settlement statements.

SELLERS’ disbursements usually are around $75 - $100 comprised of a title search ($20), bank cheque fees (up to $11 ea, but not all banks charge them) and telephone, postage, photocopying ($40). Sometimes there may be additional title/encumbrance searches, company searches (from $10 ea) and/or a Landgate fee to register the discharge of mortgage ($160).

BUYERS’ disbursements are much higher at around $430 - $650 comprised as follows:
