[If a loan is involved:] The Settlement Agent was selected by the Lender, Broker and/or me/us only for the purpose of preparing the loan documents, certifying title and handling the closing (consisting of having documents signed, liens recorded and loan proceeds disbursed). The Settlement Agent is not my/our attorney or representative for any purpose in connection with negotiating and/or obtaining this loan and its terms and Settlement Agent makes no representations as to whether this loan will benefit me/us or if the fees paid in connection
with this loan are within industry standards. I/We was advised that I/we could consult with an attorney of my/our choice to obtain advice regarding the loan and have done
so to the extent I/we deem necessary.

I/We hereby acknowledge and agree that the Settlement Agents scope of representation (as to borrowers) is limited to the proper execution of my/our documents including the disclosure of my/our loan terms, completing a title search and/or a review of the title on behalf of the lender as well as disbursing said loan according to the Settlement Statement or Closing Disclosure and recording any required documents. The above referenced functions shall be completed for the fee(s) listed on the Settlement Statement or Closing Disclosure. Any further work and/or representation contemplated by me/us will require a written agreement setting out
the additional work to be done and the payment of additional fees.

I/We hereby acknowledge and agree that certain charges on my Settlement Statement and/or Closing Disclosure, including but not limited to overnight/courier fees & recording fees may not reflect the actual cost and in fact may be more than the actual cost to settlement agent.
The additional amount(s) may vary and are to help cover the
administrative aspect of handling that particular item or service.
I/We hereby consent to and accept the above referenced up-charges, if any.

I/We further acknowledge that there may additional fees charged by the Settlement Agent for additional services (e.g. preparation of a Power of Attorney, preparation of Seller financing documents, etc.) not set out above.


NOTE: We will travel for closings at no additional charge (within a 50 mile radius
