Land Transfer Tax with Canadian Rent to Own Real Estate Investments
by: Tom Karadza

In Ontario when a property changes ownership Land Transfer fees are paid.

1. So, when you, the investor, buy the property you pay land transfer fees.

2. Then, when (and if) the tenant buys the property from you at the end of the lease then they pay the land transfer fees at that time.

Hope that helps!
