3) Home Inspection Fee:  Always recommended to get a professional inspection done by an inspector, usually between $300-$400


4) Property Taxes/Utility Bills: Any prepaid taxes and/or utility bills will be re-imbursed back to the seller as of the possession date


5) GST:  Only subject to new construction. GST is 7%, however if the purchase price is less than $450,000 you may be eligable for a rebate


6) Survey Fee: Depending on your lender, you MAY be required to have an up-to-date survery of the home.  This is roughly between $150-$300
