HRM land transfer tax

Posted on Wed, May 1, 2013 at 3:51 PM

I just paid over $3500 so a clerk at city hall could file a bill of sale into their computer system. The lawyer only charged me $600. A friend of mine, turned tail, and abandoned this province for brighter horizons. He paid $1200 to the lawyer, and a nomimal fee of $80 to transfer the title into his name. —I Bought A House In The HRM And All I Got Was A Jar of Vaseline
