First Time Home Buyer Update and Get Out a Blank Piece Of Paper

First Time Homebuyer Refund Expiring Soon !

The clock is ticking on the BC First-Time New Home Buyers’ Bonus that was introduced earlier this year by the Province of BC. It is a one-time bonus payment worth up to $10,000 for first-time new home buyers in BC, but it expires March 31st, 2013. This means that in order to take advantage of this opportunity, home buyers will need to complete a new home purchase by March 31st, 2013.


You will qualify as a first-time new home buyer if:

1. • You purchase or build an eligible new home located in B.C.;

2. • You, or for couples, you and your spouse or common law partner, have never previously owned a primary residence;

3. • You file a 2011 B.C. resident personal income tax return, or if you move to B.C. after December 31, 2011, you file a 2012 B.C. resident personal income tax return (you will not be eligible for the bonus if you move to B.C. after December 31, 2012);

4. • You are eligible for the B.C. HST New Housing Rebate; and

5. • You intend to live in the home as your primary residence.


An eligible new home includes new homes (i.e., newly constructed and substantially renovated homes) that are purchased from a builder and that are owner-built. The bonus will be available in respect of new homes purchased from a builder where:

1. • A written agreement of purchase and sale is entered into on or after February 21, 2012;

2. • HST is payable on the home (e.g., HST will generally be payable if ownership or possession of the home transfers before April 1, 2013 – see further details below); and

3. • No one else has claimed a bonus in respect of the home.
