What is land transfer tax?

The Land Transfer Tax for Newfoundland, also called introduced by the government of Newfoundland as the Registration of Deeds Prescribed Fees , is amongst the lowest in Canada as the housing prices are relatively low. The total fee consists of two parts: one based on the value of the property and one based on the mortgage amount. In short, both fees are charged at a base fee of $100 to cover for a sale price of $500 and an additional $0.40 for each $100 after that. The maximum fee payable is $5,000. The property will not be registered until the fee is paid in full.

Although there is no rebate for first-time home buyers, you may be exempt from the tax if the property is being registered on behalf of the Crown or on behalf of a non-profit airport authority.
