The parties must agree in order to determine the sale fees of the property. It is customary to pay the fees equally between the parties to the seller, in the form of dividing the amount into both parties.

Therefore, it is better to agree between the parties about the methods of paying fees and will clarify these matters during the implementation of the deal between the parties.
