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.

    29 Taunton Road, Front View
    Great Davisville Village Semi Sold by Top Broker Jethro Seymour
    He got us what we wanted exactly how we wanted it

    "We originally met Jethro at our son’s preschool where his daughter also attended. I actually recognized him from the advertisements and notepads he sends out to our neighbourhood.

    Rather spontaneously, we had spoken to the sellers of a home in Davisville about potentially purchasing their home. We grew interested in buying this house, but we wanted to know what we could get for the current house to make sure we could comfortably afford the move. We didn’t have a real estate agent, so..."
