Residential Purchase Disbursements

Please contact us for information on residential real estate transaction fees and disbursements.

Land Transfer Tax must be paid to the Province of Ontario on the closing date, unless you qualify for an exemption which we will confirm with you upon review of your purchase agreement and receipt of your completed information form. Land Transfer Tax is payable on most residential real estate transactions and is calculated based on the price of the home being purchased. To determine the land transfer tax payable on your purchase, please see our Land Transfer Tax Calculator.

First-Time Homebuyer Rebate: If you are a first-time homebuyer, you may be eligible for a refund of all or part of the land transfer tax, up to a maximum of $4,000.00. We will confirm your eligibility before calculating land transfer tax payable on your purchase.

HST: If this is a new home, HST shall be payable. You should contact your contractor to determine HST rebates. Although there is no HST on a previously occupied home, HST is payable on all services and fees except other taxes.
