I closed on a new condo in California yesterday. The title company Alliance Title gave me a summary of closing costs statement but no HUD-1 form. The closing agent said they don't issue a HUD-1 form and it is not required. They claim that all their clients prefer their closing costs staements because it is easier to read.

I had always received a HUD-1 form on my previous home purchases in other states and thought that it was mandatory. Should I demand a HUD-1 form from the settlement agent and are they required by law to provide it? Is it more useful for tax preparation to have a HUD-1 form or does it not matter?

Thanks in advance
