Alberta does not have a land transfer tax but instead levies a much smaller land titles tax based on the fair market value of the home and size of the mortgage loan.

|On the property value||$50 + $1 for every $5,000 of fair market value|
|On the mortgage||$50 + $1 for every $5,000 of fair market value

- The maximum amortization available on an insured mortgage (less than 20% down) is 25 years.
- Homes sold for more than $1,000,000 do not qualify for CMHC insurance and, therefore, require a down payment of at least 20%.
