Info for non-residents

There are no restrictions in Nova Scotia on non-residents, or non-Canadians owning property here.  
There are no different property tax rates either: everyone pays the same based on the area rate and the assessed value.    

Non-residents of Canada who sell property may have a percentage of the proceeds withheld by their lawyer for possible Capital Gains Tax.  At year-end they will file a tax return where – depending on the numbers  - that withholding may be refunded.  Talk to an accountant.
