Did you buy a building and the sale wasn’t recorded in the land registry? You must let us know. Find out how.

All new buyers of buildings in Montréal must pay property transfer duties even if the sale is not recorded in the land registry.

In addition to the disclosure form, you must provide us with the following documents:
