What is a surrender fee? I am buying a property in Florida. The title company never explained this to me.

Hey, Chris! Usually, a surrender fee is a penalty charge for canceling a contract or for early withdrawal. For example, in the case of mutual funds, if the investor sells shares within 30 and 90 days of its purchase, a short-term surrender fee may be applied. The surrender fee is designed to discourage people from early withdrawal or contract cancellation. In your case, a surrender fee may be charged if you change your mind about the home purchase and cancel the contract.
