Land transfer tax (LTT) – also known as welcome tax in Quebec – is one of the largest fees associated with the closing of your home and is often overlooked when calculating your total purchase amount. LTT is paid by homebuyers to the province when the ownership of the home or property is transferred from the seller to the buyer. In some cities, such as Montreal, buyers are also required to pay a municipal land transfer tax.

Montreal Home Purchase Assistance Program

The Montreal Home Purchase Assistance Program was introduced to provide financial assistance via lump-sum payments to first-time home buyers. The amount of the lump-sum payment depends on the purchase price of the property. 

Depending on your situation, you could receive:

  • A lump sum when you purchase a new property
  • A refund of your real estate transfer tax (welcome tax) when you purchase an existing property
