Selling a house? Beware the costs

The good news is you're almost certainly making money because home prices in Canada have been rising for the past few decades, particularly in the greater Vancouver area, as shown in the chart below, which is from a BMO Capital Markets report published this week. The bad news is: It's not as much money as you'd like. We recently sold our income property, and I was aghast at some of the costs associated with closing. Here are some of the biggies to keep in mind, if you're going that route: - Paying the agent.

. - Paying the lawyer. . - Paying the bank. . - Paying utilities and property taxes. . - Paying the government. Here's a handy-dandy checklist that you can use. Land Transfer Tax. When you buy land or an interest in land in Ontario, you pay Ontario's land transfer tax.

Land Transfer Tax

Land includes any buildings, buildings to be constructed, and fixtures (such as light fixtures, built-in appliances and cabinetry). Who pays land transfer tax? When you acquire a property or land, you pay land transfer tax to the province when the transaction closes. Land transfer tax is normally based on the amount paid for the land, in addition to the amount remaining on any mortgage or debt assumed as part of the arrangement to buy the land. In some cases, land transfer tax is based on the fair market value of the land, for example, where: the transfer of a lease with a remaining term that can exceed 50 years the transfer of land is from a corporation to one of its shareholders, or the transfer of land is to a corporation, if shares of the corporation are issued.

First-time homebuyers. Land Transfer Tax Refund for First-time Homebuyers. When you buy land or an interest in land in Ontario, you pay land transfer tax.

Land Transfer Tax Refund for First-time Homebuyers

First-time homebuyers of an eligible home may be eligible for a refund of all or part of the tax. How much money could I receive? The maximum amount of the refund is $2,000. For example: If the refund is claimed at time of registration, it may offset the land transfer tax ordinarily payable. Do I qualify? To get a refund of land transfer tax, you: must be at least 18 years old must occupy the home as your principal residence within nine months of the date of transfer cannot have ever owned an eligible home, or an interest in an eligible home, anywhere in the world, and if you entered into an agreement of purchase and sale before December 14, 2007, the eligible home must be newly constructed and you must be eligible for the Tarion New Home Warranty.

If you have a spouse, your spouse cannot have owned an eligible home, or an interest in an eligible home, anywhere in the world while being your spouse.
