Transferring ownership
Permalink  
 


If you buy a vehicle from one of the western provinces do you have to pay taxes in that province?

Can the transfer be done from Ontario?

I know about the required appraisal but is there any other hoops to jump through?

Just have the original ownership in hand with a receipt (proof of sale) until the vehicle comes to Ontario. If you try to register in the province of sale, you will be required to purchase insurance in that province as well, your Ontario insurance will not be valid to transfer ownership. Once the vehicle is in Ontario, you can then register it as a driver for which you will need insurance or as unfit for which you may not be able to get insurance until a safety is done on it. If you search hard enough and have a broker who is on your side, you may be able to get builders insurance. When you go to register the vehicle, regardless of it's state, you will be required to pay the Ontario HST. Be sure to get it registered in it's poorest state and before you sink money and raise it's appraisal and value. Be careful of the value you have put on the vehicle, they are getting people these days for posting too low a value. I just went through all this last February.

I have brought 2 cars back to Ontario in the last 4 years,1 from BC,1 from Alberta. I did not change ownership in either province. I only change ownerships in Ontario. Yes you need the original ownership and you need the ORIGINAL BILL of SALE not a NOT A COPY.

I bought a truck that came from out west with no ownership....
I had to contact the province that it came from to run a VIN check. They're records only go back to the 80's so they weren't able to tell me where it came from , no record of it , so they sent me a letter stating it was ok to register it in Ontario... I signed an affidavit stating how I acquired it and the story ...... Paid fees to this that and the other thing...
Now I have the truck registered in Ontario in my name....

I had the same issue with Alberta and my truck before I ended up doing all the research myself to got a plausible history. Alberta Gov't wouldn't lift a finger, do a search or give me any info under the privacy act. Luckily I was able to find a previous owner and get enough paper work to register the vehicle. A funny thing, when I went to register the truck after four visits, They told me to go get it weighed, even though it is only a 1/4 ton and 90 years old.

         Yes I had a '40 Ford fordor. I bought a Kansas cab and made it into a pickup. I have to take it to get it weighed. As far as the other                   province ownership issue I originally asked about I've decided to not buy that one. Thanks for the help.

I did have to get the truck weighed or have the gm dealership to verify the weight ... My good friend works at the local dealership so he hand wrote a note to the mto the curb weight , VIN, date and his name on the dealership letterhead...
he also gave me a stack of blank letterhead sheets incase I ran into the same issue...
along with the appraisal he also wrote up for me it was fairly easy to jump through all the hoops.... just make sure you do everything in order or they'll have you chasing your tail trying to get all the paperwork ... and of course all the fees for each step.
