The County of Los Angeles imposes a transfer fee equivalent to $1.10 per $1,000 of the selling price on all sales of real property in the county.  This is typically paid by the seller.

Some cities impose an additional transfer fee; others none.  The city of Redondo Beach, as an example, charges $2.20 per $1,000 of selling price.  This is often negotiated to be shared by the buyer and seller.  

The city of Los Angeles charges $4.50 per $1,000 on the selling price exclusive of outstanding indebtedness (loans) against the property.
