land transfer tax


Keep in mind that home buyers get absolutely no benefit from paying the tax. It is simply a cash grab at a time when buyers typically are under the financial pressure that accompanies a move.



As a result of recent announcements by the federal, provincial and municipal governments, change is coming to the real estate industry and real estate agents and their clients must be prepared to adapt.


The Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) is raising concerns about a new proposal calling for the City of Toronto to increase its Municipal Land Transfer Tax on the most expensive properties.


LTT can present buyers with considerable sticker shock, especially those in Ontario’s most expensive housing markets.


In response to the Parti Québécois promising a first-time buyer tax credit, the Quebec Federation of Real Estate Boards (QFREB) is calling on the three other parties to propose concrete measures for homeownership.


While every province charges LTT or some form of property transfer fee, depending on the tax structure, buyers may pay anywhere from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands in addition to their home purchase.
