Land title transfer fees Alberta (updated in 2022)

Alberta does not have a large land transfer tax like most provinces in Canada. Instead, it has a much smaller land title transfer fee. There are two major parts to the fee: one on your home’s value and the other on your mortgage amount. The rates for the two parts are as follows:

  Land title transfer fee First-time home buyer rebate
On the property value $50 base + $2 for every $5,000 or portion thereof of the property value. There is no land transfer tax rebate in Alberta.
On the mortgage $50 base +$1.50 for every $5000 or part thereof of the mortgage amount. There is no land transfer tax rebate in Alberta.

 

Example land title transfer fee calculation - Alberta

Let’s assume you are purchasing a house worth $300,000 with a 20% down payment resulting in a $240,000 mortgage.


1. Land title transfer fee on the property value:

  • $300,000 property value 
    ÷ $,5000 tax portion size
    = 60 portions of value up to $5,000 (rounded up)

  • $50 base value
    +
    ( $2 tax per $5,000 portion × 60 portions of value up to $5,000 )
    = $170 land title transfer fee on property value


2. Land title transfer fee on the mortgage amount

  • $240,000 mortgage amount
    ÷ $5,000 tax portion size
    = 48 portions of value up to $5,000 (rounded up)

  • $50 base value
    +
    ( $2 tax per $5,000 portion × 48 portions of value up to $5,000 )
    = $120 land title transfer fee on property value


3. Total land transfer fee 

  • $170 fee on property
    $120 fee on mortgage 
    = $290 total land transfer tax
