Newsflash: Revision of closing documents

We are closing on our new home on Monday. We received our closing documents on Thursday night – which we signed immediately. We then called both mortgage company and title company around 12 noon Friday to ensure we were ok to wire the funds for Monday’s close. After the funds were wired – we then received a revised closing document at 5pm where the cash to close has increased $750. We called both mortgage company and title company and were very direct about how it was unacceptable that we weren’t notified and to find out at 5pm on the Friday before Monday’s close. Both parties are blaming each other due to some oversight of extra funds required (legitimate charges – just not properly communicated to us). We have no issue paying the remainder, but are we in the right to be upset with the mortgage and title company? Is this normal?tl:dr – wired funds to find out cash to close wasn’t properly calculated. Now we have to write a check for the outstanding difference. Is this typical in real estate deals?
