Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
Do all title holders agree to have her name added and does she agree as well?
Then this can be done very simply.
You will need to retain a real estate lawyer but this is simple and will not cost very much at all.
It doesn't matter where she lives at this point.
But later on, if she is on title and not living in the house and then wants to sell the house she will have to pay capital gains tax on the increase in value of the house since she was added to the title.
Does that help as a starting point?Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
