HST New Housing Rebate

Did you know that you can recover some of the HST charged on newly constructed and substantially renovated homes? You could receive a rebate of 36% on the federal portion of HST and 75% on the provincial portion of HST when you buy, build or renovate your home.

When you purchase a newly constructed home, the rebates are usually factored in the selling price.  However in some instances, such as rental property purchases, owner-built homes and substantially renovated homes, you must apply for these rebates yourself.

These rebates are significant.  See the table below and contact our office for further information.

  • Did you build or buy a home to be leased by a tenant?
