    It’s the home buyer who pays land transfer tax. Moneyville.ca just touched on closing costs/land transfer fees and budgeting carefully! http://goo.gl/cMswc

    Example: a $559,900 purchase = $18,200 in additional costs on closing.

    Home buyers should budget the equivalent of 1.5 to 4 per cent of the purchase price for closing costs. Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. have a useful budgeting sheet that can help:


    Mortgage comparison site Ratehub.ca has a LTT calculator:


    that can help estimate the Land Transfer Tax.
