Download template Real Estate Forms for buyers, sellers, realtors and land titles lawyers in the Province of Nova Scotia.
Most municipalities in Nova Scotia charge a Deed Transfer Tax on the transfer of land. Each municipal unit sets its own rate, and buyers should check with the relevant muncipality prior to making an offer on a property to find out what the current rate is.
The province's land registration system is electronic and most filings are done online from the lawyer's office. This speeds up the entire process and allows transactions to be done from any part of Nova Scotia, regardless of where the property is located.
