Do Investment Properties Qualify for The New Housing HST Rebate in Ontario?

Property buyers, both experienced and novice, are often confused about the new housing rebate when they purchase an investment property in Ontario. If you’re about to close on a property purchase and not quite sure about renting it out, flipping it, or moving in, it pays to understand the ins and outs of the new housing rebate.

There are two primary HST Rebates in Ontario available to property owners, each with different requirements. Investors, who will not be registering their home as their primary place of residence, should apply for the New Residential Rental Rebate. In fact, the monetary benefits of this rebate could be substantial – up to $30K depending on the purchase price.
