Seller's Costs

Legal Fees

Typically ranges from $450.00 to $1,000.00 plus and disbursements. Most sales are $499 plus HST, $150 extra if there is a mortgage to discharge.  Best to budget, in the $900 to $1000 range all in if there is a mortgage. 
A real estate lawyer can provide you with details. You can contact me if you are looking for a knowledgeable, experienced and reliable lawyer. Over the years, I have met a few that I can trust do take care of my clients very well.

Real Estate Commission

The agreed upon commission plus HST.

Discharge of Mortgage

Sometimes if you are breaking your mortgage contract there may a penalty depending on the terms of your contract. It is usually three months interest, the interest differential between the old and new mortgage for the balance of the term, or a combination of the above. You should verify with your lending institution.


The moving costs may vary depending on your choice of movers (i.e. professional movers or packing yourself and renting a UHAUL truck).
