Don’t forget: Land transfer tax is payable upon closing of your home purchase.

By: Mojet Lizardo

With all the essentials of your home purchase, there will be a few details which you may not cover and completely forget about. As much as we all try our best to account for everything, some details sometimes left unnoticed. Minor lapses are good as there is no harm done. We must however not forget significant factors such as the land transfer tax.

Land transfer tax, as mandated by Land Transfer Act, is to be paid by every person who immediately after the registration of a conveyance has a beneficial interest in the land that was acquired or increased as a result of a conveyance or as part of an arrangement relating to the conveyance (Land Transfer Tax Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. L.6)
