FAQs - If I am selling my home, who should apply for the Home Owner Grant and pay the taxes?

Question - If I am selling my home, who should apply for the Home Owner Grant and pay the taxes?

If you have not yet sold the property and are eligible for the grant, then you should apply for it. If you have already sold the property, and the new owner(s) live at the property, then the new owner(s) should apply for it, assuming that they have not claimed a grant for any other property in this calendar year. Attorneys for buyers and sellers of property normally adjust the purchase/sale price to account for the property taxes. If you are unable to see how the taxes were adjusted on your Statement of Adjustments, then you should contact the lawyer or realtor who closed your sale for further advisement.
