Certain fees that are tied to real estate are the responsibility of the homeowner.

A survey is an essential part of any project. The fees for these services are negotiated between the land owner and the property owner. Resort fees, landscaping fees and septic are also negotiated between the homeowner and the appropriate government authority, landscape design entity or resort.

Septic design and installation services are regulated by the county or city and are the responsibility of the homeowner. Septic system design is highly dependent on the surrounding soil conditions and the size of the home.
