Do I qualify for a newly-built home exemption in BC?

To qualify for a newly-built home exemption, you must register the property land and improvement transfer at the Land Title Office after February 16, 2016, and you also must:

Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident (present your Social Insurance Number (SIN) or proof of permanent residency and your birthdate)

The property also must:

  • Be located in B.C.
  • Only used as your principal residence
  • Have a fair market value of $750,000 or less

More On The Newly-Built Home Exemption

The newly-built home exemption reduces or waives the amount of property transfer tax you pay when buying a newly-built home.
If you qualify for the exemption, you may be eligible for either a full or partial exemption from the tax.
If you previously paid property transfer tax on vacant land and constructed a newly-built home on the land, you may be eligible for a refund.

We are very excited to have been approved within a matter of days for our new mortgage. The app was simple to use and our account manager was very helpful in providing us with options for mortgage providers.

It was my first time shopping for a mortgage online and it was the best experience ever! I didn’t have to take any time off work, or make a bunch of appointments to review my documents. I got the lowest rate going and it couldn’t have been easier.

I received fast responses, easy solutions, and oh yeah… a guarantee of the lowest rate in Canada.

The hypothetical rate is awesome. Thank you for your work in getting that together for me. It is very much appreciated. And thank you for your hard work as well, explaining how your company works, patiently answering my questions, and for the link. I look forward to working with you again.
