    The Lifestyle Shop

    Has anyone had experience with this store steps south of King & Spadina? I walked in unassuming just to browse and walked out very impressed. The shop itself is narrow for all that they have to show, but when you get down to it they have a lot of great pieces, specializing in condo size...

    Land Transfer Tax - $400K

    In Ontario, I understand that the Land Transfer Tax is 2% on the amount that exceeds $400K. Also, in Toronto, the city land transfer tax is fully rebated if the purchase price is under $400K. My question is does the purchase price of $400K+ include the purchase price of a parking spot and...
