The bill also requires the transferor of residential real property subject to transfer fees to make the specified disclosure regarding those fees if the recorded document describing the transfer fees has not already been provided. The bill also clarifies the definition of a transfer fee and specifies that the information must be set forth in a single document and may not be incorporated by reference from any other document.
