Documentary Fee Change Instruction Page
A retail seller must comply with the instructions on this page in order to provide the Office of Consumer Credit Commissioner (OCCC) written notice of a documentary fee increase. Every licensed location and registered office at which licensed activity is conducted must provide separate written notice in order to increase the amount of their documentary fee in excess of $50. In other words, a retail seller, under Chapter 348 of the Texas Finance Code, is limited to charge a $50 documentary fee unless written notice is provided to the OCCC. A retail seller who has multiple licenses under a master file number must provide separate written notices for each license in order to charge a documentary fee in excess of $50.
