Transfers of immovables not entered in the land survey registry

As of March 18, 2016, legislative modifications relative to the Act respecting duties on transfers of immovables came into force, among others:

  • the establishment of a disclosure mechanism for deed transfers;
  • the establishment of a transfer disclosure mechanism for properties not entered in the land registry

Citizens having purchased an immovable (e.g. mobile home on a rented land, cottage on Public land) not registered with the land survey registry office must now pay a transfer tax.

The purchaser has the obligation to disclose to the Municipality, within 90 days of the transaction, the information related thereto using the Non Registered Transfer Disclosure Form.

Once completed, the form accompanied by the transfer document (deed) must be sent to or by mail at 1743 Valcartier Boulevard, Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier, Quebec G0A 4S0.

Note that Revenu Québec will impose a residual tax equal to 150% of the transfer tax on a transferee (buyer) who has failed to produce the notice of disclosure to the municipality.
