HST New Housing Rebate

November 14, 2011 - Updated: November 14, 2011

Government Programs and Regulations

You may be eligible to claim a rebate for a part of the HST you pay on the purchase price of a newly constructed home or the cost of building your home if:

  •  you buy a new or substantially renovated home (including the land or if you lease the land) from a builder;
  • you buy a new mobile home (including a modular home) or a floating home from a builder or vendor;
  • you buy a share if capital stock of a co-operative housing corporation;
  • you construct or substantially renovate your own home, or carry out a major addition (or hire another person to do so); 
  • your home is destroyed in a fire and is subsequently rebuilt.



  • The purchase price of resale homes are exempt from the HST. The purchase price of newly constructed homes are subject to HST.
  • New home buyers can apply for a 36% rebate of the GST (federal portion of HST) applicable to the purchase price to a maximum of $6,300 for home costing $350,000 or less before GST. For new homes priced between $350,000 and $450,000 before GST, the GST rebate would be reduced proportionately. New homes priced $450,000 before GST or higher would not receive a rebate.
  • New home buyers can apply for a 75% rebate of the PST (provincial part of HST) applicable to the purchase price to a maximum of $24,000.


Resale homes are exempt from HST.
