Montreal closing costs
If you’re buying a home in Montreal, be sure to factor in the relevant closing costs. Some closing costs can be added to your mortgage and paid off over time, but others need to be paid in cash upfront. Be sure to remember this when you set your savings goals.
- Quebec Land Transfer Tax: The Quebec government will charge a land transfer tax on top of your property purchase price. Montreal is subject to a higher set of land transfer taxes than the rest of Quebec. The marginal land transfer tax rate for Montreal is 1.5% - 2.5% depending on the purchase price. Learn more here.
- CMHC Insurance (and PST): If you take out an insured mortgage, you’ll need to pay for mortgage default insurance, also called CMHC insurance. While the premiums can be added to your mortgage, the provincial sales tax (PST) on those premiums needs to be paid upfront. In Quebec, premiums are subject to a 9% tax.
- Legal Fees: Any property purchase will require some legal documents to be processed by a Quebec licensed real estate lawyer. Fees for this are generally in the hundreds or low thousands of dollars.
- Adjustment fees: You may need to reimburse the seller for any prepaid utilities, maintenance, or taxes on the home.
These are just some of the closing costs you’ll pay when buying a home in Montreal. Learn more on our closing costs education center page.
Montreal first-time homebuyer rebates
Unlike other provinces including BC and Ontario, Quebec does not have a first-time homebuyers land transfer tax rebate. This is especially unfortunate for first-time homebuyers in Montreal, which has relatively high land transfer tax rates.
There is, however, an additional first-time homebuyers tax credit available in Quebec. Alongside the maximum $750 first-time homebuyer federal tax credit, Quebec residents can claim an additional $750 maximum credit in the year they first purchase a home.
In addition to this, first-time homebuyers in Montreal are able to access the national first-time homebuyer programs. Be sure to check those out if you’re in this situation.
