The Land Transfer Tax for New Brunswick was introduced in 1983, under the Real Property Transfer Tax Act. The tax applies to all legal property including mobile homes. In New Brunswick, the Land Transfer Tax is merely 1% of the greater of the assessed value of the property or consideration for the transfer for all property with a transfer registration date after April 1, 2016. If registered between June 1, 2012 and March 31, 2016, you will be taxed at a rate of 0.5%. If registered prior to June 1, 2012, the tax rate is 0.25%. The assessed value of the property is determined by the real value of the property at the time of registering the transfer. There are no rebates for first-time home buyers.
