Duties on transfers of immovables

Duties on transfers of immovables are charges that are payable when the right of ownership on a property is transferred. The buyer is responsible for paying these duties. Where there is more than one buyer, they are joint and severally liable for payment of the transfer duties. Every municipality may collect duties on the transfer of any immovable situated within its territory. (Act respecting duties on transfers of immovables – R.S.Q., chapter D-15.1).
