Land Transfer Tax is a significant closing cost you will have to take into consideration when buying a new home.landtransfertax

Unless you live in Alberta, Saskatchewan, or rural Nova Scotia, land transfer taxes (or property purchase tax) are a basic fact of life. These taxes, levied on properties that are changing hands, are the responsibility of the purchaser. Depending on where you live, taxes can range from a half a per cent to two per cent of the total value of the property.

Many provinces have multi-tiered taxation systems that can prove complicated. If you purchase a property for $260,000 in Ontario, for example, .5 per cent is charged on the first $55,000, 1 per cent is charged on $55,000 – $250,000, while the $250,000 – $400,000 range is taxed at 1.5 per cent. Your total tax bill? $2,375.00.

    Bayview Village Condo Leased by Broker Jethro Seymour
    Jethro exceeded our expectations!

    “We were trying to lease our investment property for a while with other agents. It sat on the market for over 3 months without much attention. A good friend recommended Jethro so we decided to meet with him and get some professional advice.
