Alberta Title Registration Fees

The fee is calculated like this:

$50.00 + $1 for every $5,000 of the value of the land

So a house valued at $500,000 would cost

$50.00 + ($1 × ($500,000/$5,000)) = $150

The mortgage registration fee is similar, except that it’s only charged on the mortgage amount, not the land value amount. So, if we were to put a 20% down payment on a $500,000 property, the remaining mortgage would be $400,000. The mortgage registration fee would then be this:

$50.00 + ($1 × ($400,000/$5,000)) = $130

That brings the total cost to registering your property to $280.

If you were to buy a house in cash (without a mortgage) then you would avoid the mortgage registration fee, but be required to pay the title registration fee.
