How’s the 100 Queen condo downtown? Why buy a condo? Coming Soon: Located on the North side of Queens Quay East between Cooper Street and New Street, 100 Queens Quay East is perfectly positioned in Toronto’s next downtown expansion. 100 Queens Quay East is part of the Menkes “Sugar Wharf” redevelopment: an 11.5 acre, 4.5 million square foot mixed-use project featuring a 675,000 square foot, Class “AAA” LEED Platinum office building, an expansive new 3 acre public park, ~200,000 square feet of retail space and ~4,600 residential units. 100 Queens Quay East will be the new headquarters of the LCBO and will feature a flagship LCBO retail store.

Real estate investment involves a wide range of areas, in view of the different economic strength of investors, the choice of investment products are not the same. For some institutions and companies, it is generally a better choice to choose commercial properties with a long investment cycle and a stable cash flow return. For institutions and investors with strong economic strength and land development ability, choosing to buy land or old houses for development is a high-risk but high-return investment strategy. For the majority of small and medium-sized investors, buying ready-made residential properties to pursue real estate appreciation is the focus of most of these investors.

If real estate investors have limited funds and do not want to take care of the property too much, but also pursue a stable cash flow and hope to have a certain degree of house price appreciation in the future, investing in Condo apartments or uncompleted Condo apartments is a more common way of investment at present. The main advantages of investing in Condo existing houses or uncompleted buildings are:

  1. Compared with other real estate investment products, the threshold requirements for start-up capital for investment in Condo existing houses and Condo flats are relatively low.
  2. There is a serious shortage of rental units in Toronto in recent years, the rent is rising rapidly, the rent-to-sales ratio of Condo is also relatively higher, and the cash flow is good.
  3. The existing house of Condo is relatively convenient to manage, basically does not need to carry on too much maintenance and management to the property, and the Condo building does not need to spend much energy on investors before handing over the house. For many investors who own a large number of properties, the management cost is lower.
  4. The price appreciation of Condo is much faster than inflation, especially after the introduction of overseas buyer tax in Ontario, the prices of low-rise residential properties have been reduced to varying degrees, while Condo prices have maintained a trend of growth.
  5. The growth of Condo new houses in the city center is far from being able to meet the population growth rate of the city center, and the supply of houses exceeds the demand.

To sum up, the threshold for investing in Condo is lower and easier to manage, with stable cash flow and strong asset growth potential.

In addition to good cash flow, the current price increase of Condo in the Greater Toronto area is very good, but dating back to 2011 to 2016, the price trends of Condo and Freehold are completely different. The annual growth rate of low-rise property prices from 2011 to April 2017 is at a double-digit high, while the price of existing houses in Condo remains basically stable during the second period, with only a very small annual price growth rate. Condo even declined slightly in some areas.

How’s the landing condo? Do you know anything about it?

How’s the landing condo? Do you know anything about it?Hey guys, I’m considering buying a condo in Wilmington, especially if home values trend down due to current economic conditions, but its really hard to find any that aren’t super old, or in a bad part of town. The only option I’ve found is the Christina Landing condo. I actually rented an apartment at Christina landing a few years back, and liked living there but have since moved north.

I’d also like to look at some options in Justison/Riverwalk, but those seem to not go on the market that often…

My big concern here though is, looking at historical prices on both these and the Justison condos, they appear to still be trending downward since the 2008 crisis…

Anyone know what the story is there? A lot of these units are selling for, it looks like, 20-30% less than back then still, which worries me about future resale value. Were they just absurdly overpriced back then or something? Or is there something fundamentally problematic about these properties contributing to them losing value over time?

Have a friend who owns one there and yes timing was really bad. They were completed at height of market. They’ve been holding onto it and renting to try to get money back down the road. And there was a law suit over rotting decks I think.

Building looks kinda old from the outside for the Dorset. I don’t see any units for sale online either. But I’ll keep an eye out!

Does your friend own one of the townhouses or one of the high rise condos? Because I’m aware of lawsuits for the townhouses, but I thought the high rises were fine.

Think they own a townhouse, didn’t even realize there is high rises.

Yes Dorset building is older, but units are all different. There is a 2 bedroom for sale now for 97k. IMO being near Trolley is nicer than being near Christina Landing.

How is it as a rental investment property (Dorset)? Trolley Square is where all the recent college grads live right?

It rents very easily. But we don’t make much because of the condo fees. Which are good for the renters because they include utilities, including cable. We could likely raise rent, but we have good tenants who pay on time and have for over two years.

And yes, it definitely skews younger in Trolley. But I think its much safer than Market Street and probably even the side of Riverfront where Christina Landing is.

I’ll add that I rented an apartment in the Dorsey for a year and, even though the unit was dated, we loved it. We would’ve stayed longer if my parents hadn’t bought a house in DE to become my landlords. There was a good mix of older couples who had owned for a long time and younger families who were just starting out.

Yes, the townhouses are the ones with the issues. I don’t think the towers are having the same issues as they were built with a steel frame.

The development’s completion coincided with the 2008 crash. From an demand perspective, I’d say the condos remain popular.

Yeah don’t buy those. The pilings are rotting out, and the developer refused to admit fault, leaving them prone to collapse.

Units were very overpriced at the start. I looked at a couple 3 years ago. The space is bright and the views are beautiful. One tower is rentals so you might try renting for a year before you buy. Also viewed two in Justison, that side of the river is more active. The units were nice but smaller. The HOA fees seem high at Justison if you compare amenities with Christina having an exercise space and a pool deck.

Yeah, well I own a new home right now (constructed ~5 years ago) and while the HOA fees are 10x lower, I’ve been paying out the nose for stupid crap like A/C unit needing to be replaced due to improper initial installation by the builder ($10k to replace/fix), roof shingles blowing off (thousands of dollars in repairs and water damage), etc. which won’t be a problem with living in a high-rise condo. Also I’m so tired of my neighbors being irresponsible not picking up their dog’s poo, or leaving trash to blow around into my yard, or stealing Amazon packages off my front door, or taking stuff out of my car if I leave it parked outside and forget to lock it…

By now, I figure a high HOA fee is worth it for me to not have all these stupid costly worries weighing on me.

Young and old choosing condos

Indeed, the latest numbers from the National Household Survey, released Wednesday, suggest condominiums are becoming the domain of both young and old. Among owners, 20 per cent are under the age of 35, compared with 10.5 per cent for other dwellings, the Statistics Canada survey indicates.

As predicted, they are proving popular with the retirement set. 26.1 per cent of Canadian owners are aged 65 or older, compared with 20.7 per cent for other dwellings.

Jane Drover, a Calgary professor who is a year and a half away from retirement, said she expects to end up in a condo, but not for at least a few more years.

“I travel so much that I would like a place where I don’t have to look after yard work or worry about a leaky roof or a pipe bursting,” she said. “That’s a shared expense when you have a condo.”

But many of her friends who plan to downsize are looking to move into smaller homes, not apartments, because condo fees can be so high they can feel like a mortgage, Drover added.

Phil Soper, president and chief executive of real-estate firm Royal LePage, said many new retirees suddenly find themselves dealing with kids at home.

“The adult children of boomers are living at home at about twice the rate as baby boomers themselves when they were that age,” Soper said. “They need the space to house not only themselves, but also these boomerang young adults who are living at home and working.”

80% of boomers own their homes outright

Baby boomers are the wealthiest generation of retirees to date, with almost 80 per cent owning their homes outright, Soper added.

“They don’t need the money for retirement right now,” he said.

Financial tools like reverse mortgages, which allow people to stay in their house while still making withdrawals on the capital, also allow older homeowners to stay in their homes longer.

Immigration is also keeping the condo market buoyant.

Across Canada, the new home market, which includes condos and single homes, is being overbuilt by about 250,000 units, or about a whole year worth of building, according to TD economist Diana Petramala.

“Immigration is strong, [so]

we do think that these units can, over time, be easily absorbed by increasing demand,” she said.

“Maybe the pattern of immigration is changing … but they are spreading out to areas where there has been more overbuilding, like Calgary, Edmonton, maybe some of the Atlantic provinces, where the resource sector is driving good employment outcomes.”

Housing market has stabilized

Experts also believe markets across Canada have stabilized after any bumps in home sales following Ottawa’s tightening of lending rules.

Wednesday’s survey numbers also made it clear that many Canadians are swimming in housing debt. About 3.3 million households, some 25 per cent, spent 30 per cent or more of their total income on shelter — mortgage or rent payments, plus utility bills, property taxes and condo fees — exceeding the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s measure of affordability.

Those that exceeded the threshold did so to the tune of an average of $1,259 a month, about $510 more than what CMHC’s measure suggests they can afford.

And while the potentially toxic combination of high household debt and a possible interest rate hike could send the finances of Canadians spiralling out of control, economists believe it’s only a real threat if rates climb suddenly and sharply.

“It’s true that as home prices have risen people have taken larger debts than maybe they’ve been used to, but interest rates are low and debt is actually quite affordable for the majority of households,” said Petramala.

“Our anticipation is that interest rates are only going to be able to go up gradually.”

Buyers must adjust expectations

Soper said he doesn’t believe any changes will happen until well into 2014, and when they do, the market will simply take a breath and adjust, especially if the underlying economic fundamentals stay strong.

“If people remain confident in their ability to make monthly payments, they will just adjust,” he said. “They will adjust their expectations in terms of buying a less expensive home or potentially a different neighbourhood.”

That’s exactly what Liz Clark, 34, chose to do when she and her husband bought their first home four years ago.

While many of her friends opted for big, newly built homes, the Hamilton mother of two chose a modest starter home in a neighbourhood she liked.

“Even though I’m approved for a certain amount of mortgage, I never go above what I can afford comfortably,” she said.

多伦多豪宅区South Richvale | 多伦多楼花新闻

【South Richvale】

在本地人的心目中,地位近乎于C12区的York Mills豪宅区,但是同等地块和房型却比York Mills便宜不少。

地产局以Carville Road为中线将该区域分为南北两部分。豪宅区South Richvale,就是在Carville Road以南的区域。

South Richvale在Richmond Hill的发展历史中可谓悠久,1910年后随着汽车的规模应用,Yonge街发展迅速,从Downtown一直北上发展。当时开发商就在Langstaff Road以北开发建设了5英亩的房产,并注册登记社区。到4、50年代,Richmond Hill段的Yonge街大规模建设,South Richvale一带的基础设施开始改善,包括道路、污水道、化粪池等。

到70年代,这个社区才开始建造大量的房子。近年来South Richvale的旧宅翻建备受追捧,因此房价涨势迅猛,一百多万房子属于稀松平常的房子,五六百万的豪宅比比皆是,上千万的豪宅也时有得见。其建筑风格多元化,既有经典的豪宅风格,也有被翻建成现代主义的新建筑,每栋建筑都融入周边环境,显得有机融洽。

South Richvale 自然环境非常好,Upper East Don River 从小区中间由北向南蜿蜒而过,沿河谷两岸郁郁葱葱,在森林保护带中还开辟出了一条约4.5公里长的蜿蜒小路,供人们行走锻炼,探险游玩,点缀在社区内的 Chapman Park, Morgan Boyle Park,为人们提供日常休闲的绝佳去处。绿化地带为很多动物提供栖息地,体现人和自然共同生活的和谐,是安省旅游局推荐的徒步健身的自然“氧吧”。


小区西南部分靠Bathurst St.就是全国一流高尔夫俱乐部Richmond Hill Golf Club和集休闲健身运动宴会于一体的Country Club, 这片绿地占了该区差不多六分之一的地域范围。在社区南部是South Richvale Greenway”,它像一道自然屏障把HWY7横隔在外,将隐秘安静藏在豪宅区中。

值得一提的是,在South Richvale豪宅区,高尔夫俱乐部及乡村俱乐部占了社区约15%的面积。更可贵的是,这世外桃源竟于繁华一墙之隔,东北角对面即是大型的高尚购物中心的Hillcrest Mall,Mall对面是South Hill商业广场,扩建升级不久的Richvale Community Centre 是Richmond Hill 设施设备运动场地最齐全的中心。Yonge街上的Hillcrest Mall是Richmond Hill 最大的名牌购物休闲中心。

Richmond Hill中心图书馆是该市最大的图书馆坐落在社区北端,Major Mackenzie Drive以南。在Weldrick Road 和Yonge街交叉口的东南角的商场区还开业不久的华人喜欢的大统华(TNT)超市。单单就这几大方便民生的重要场所或机构令很多社区望其项背,艳羡不已了。


South Richvale豪宅区的教育资源也可圈可点,公立小学有以加拿大前总督华人伍冰枝命名的法语小学Adrienne Clarkson PS, 英语学校有Charles Howitt PS、Roselawn PS、 Ross Doan PS, 高中有Langstaff SS, 天主教学校有St. Charles Garnier CES、St. Theresa of Lisieux HS。

社区的最北面是新建的一片镇屋,这里的学区和背面的北贵谷社区一样,分别是幼儿园到3年级的Ross Doan Public School, 4-8年级的 Rosslawn Public School ,以及Alexander Mackenzie High School 高中。

Why This North York Neighbourhood is One of the City’s Hottest Spots to Live

It should not shock anyone that at the present time, a portion of Toronto’s generally sought-after areas are a protected separation from the turmoil and conservativeness of the midtown center.

Simultaneously, the vast majority would prefer not to wander excessively far from the city lights or the individual and expert contributions housed inside the city’s glass and solid matrix.

Helpful at that point, that in the course of recent many years, North York has gone through a refined change that occasions consummately with this expansion sought after for uptown land. Specifically, the core of the district – the clamoring crossing point of Yonge and Sheppard – has filled quickly as of late, turning into an inexorably wanted spot to call home.

Area is positively one of its significant selling highlights. With the Sheppard TTC station simple advances away and Highway 401 practically around the bend, the midtown center is consistently inside simple reach. Indeed, in under 25 minutes, the tram will take you right to the core of Yonge-Dundas Square.

Obviously, North York has just become a commendable objective in its own right.

The Yonge-Sheppard neighborhood has advanced to turn into an energetic and bright one, offering the entirety of the fundamentals, in addition to more – from boutiques and hot cafés to nearby ranchers’ business sectors and a Whole Foods – inside strolling distance.

A conspicuous illustration of the local’s resurrection is the Yonge Sheppard Center, which was offered a fresh chance to take life by the horns because of a gigantic redesign finished a year ago that has delivered the once drained looking structure practically unrecognizable. Nine years really taking shape, the modernizing change accompanied a $300 million sticker price that has added highlights including all the more retail shops, another childcare space, another food court zone, and a simple on-the-eyes augmentation of the façade on both Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue.

North York

Nearby foodies have no deficiency of cooking alternatives inside strolling distance, with the Yonge Street stretch among Sheppard and Finch lodging everything from Korean and Japanese, to Taiwanese and Persian contributions. You’ll likewise discover welcoming bars, neighborhood restaurants, and in and out alternatives.

When the worldwide pandemic has featured the significance of green space and the outside, admittance to such apparently straightforward joys is bountiful in North York. Willowdale Park highlights two jungle gyms, a sprinkle cushion, four tennis courts, and green spaces. In the interim, the serene Albert Standing Park includes a brightening drinking fountain, arbor, and sitting region. In the cold weather months, the skating arena at the close by Mel Lastman Square can give long stretches of value time to your family.

When day by day life continues, expressions of the human experience and culture sweethearts don’t need to wander into the city to get a fix of unrecorded music or theater, on account of the local’s closeness to the celebrated Toronto Center for the Arts.

The redevelopment of the area has definitely accompanied a small bunch of glossy new townhouse structures. Furthermore, the allure of nearby ventures like the foreseen 181 East, the most recent undertaking from Stafford Homes, is certain.

North York

181 East

Found advances from Yonge and Sheppard, the forthcoming boutique apartment suite – the solitary boutique address in North York – offers an upscale and unmistakably downtown vibe, yet obliges the genuine requirement for all the more land and the capacity for its inhabitants to reconnect with nature. It’s one of only a handful few midrise structures encompassed by low-ascent private and parks, with plentiful greenery offering an ideal blend among city and rural life. Here, occupants are helped to remember their closeness to the city because of clearing, south-bound perspectives.

Planned by grant winning inside fashioner Johnson Chou, the smooth, nine-story midrise building highlights 185 units, going from lone wolves to three-room suites. With no lack of glass all through, it includes a brilliant, breezy plan and is finished with best in class luxuries. Alternatives like cooperating spaces, engaging capacities, and an open air wellness space take into account the youthful expert set.

Not exclusively do the neighborhood’s forthcoming, plan forward structures like 181 East settle on savvy way of life decisions, they additionally make shrewd speculations. The mystery is out about this jewel of a neighborhood only north of the city; its charm more engaging than any other time in recent memory with the disintegration of the customary midtown office.

However, on the off chance that you need access, time to act is currently – while this world is still close enough.

受让人 – Assignee,也就是最终买主。需要注意:

1. 请律师仔细阅读检查过原始买卖合同及相关文件,并签署转让协议。2. 可能需要准备一份贷款预批文件(Mortgage Pre-approval)给开发商来证明受让人可以获得银行贷款。

3. 受转双方需在文件上约定一个日期,支付房屋转让造成的差价。(也可以是我们统称的楼花转让 Closing Day)

4. Assignment 房子通常价格会比新的现房总价低,但前期所需要的资金较多。受让人可以在房子最后交接贷款时按照是转让价格贷款,多余的部分可贴补前期的资金。

入住后:受让人在Occupancy Day时可能需要支付以下费用:


*入住费: 地税(预估),管理费,开发商利息,其他杂费

一般开发商会要求开6个月或一年的预期支票(Post- dated cheques)

最终交房日(Final Closing Day)


1、Levies费 (通常开发商会 Cap)



4、Tarion新房保险(约$600 – $1,900)

5、Hydro、water、gas meter安装费和连接费

6、Discharge of builder’s mortgages,约$200 – $300



9、GST/HST Rebate : 对于最终买家来说, 如果符合申请新房HST rebate的条件 (自住/出租),就可以申请这个rebate。

1. 提前转让。英文是Assignment。其实,是第一手买家将一份有利可图的买卖合约加价卖给第二手买家,第一手买家在收楼前就可赚得投资收益。第二手买家明知第一手买家赚了他的钱,为什么二手买家还会买呢?因为一手买家已经为第二手买家抢到了他喜欢的楼层/朝向;甚至,从第一手买家那里买比直接从发展商那里买还要便宜,第二手买家也是有利可图的。如果要作Assignment,两个买家要从发展商那里得到许可,也应该得到你的地产经纪(协助议定市场价格)和律师(把关合同文件)的专业服务。

2. 到期转让。英文是Back To Back Closing. 很多朋友会一直等到发展商交楼时才完成转让,主要原因是可赚到全部升值空间。另外的原因也可能是,部分发展商会在原始的买卖合约中写明不许可提前转让。当然,有的发展商也很灵活,有时会在正式合约外与买家签一纸修改条款,许可买家(免费)做一次提前转让/转名手续。所以,买楼花时要让您的地产经纪向发展商问清楚可不可以签一纸修改条款。同一栋楼在不同的发售阶段,发展商做法可以不同。好在过去几年楼价一直在升,大多数买家等到发展商交楼时才完成转让并且赚到了可观的收益。现在市场上转让的楼花除了一小部分是通过开发商转让的以外,很多是通过地产经纪做的。那么在这一过程中,要注意什么,有哪些费用呢?在楼花的转让过程中有转让方和被转让方,先说说转让方。在英文中,转让方叫Assignor,把自己名下的楼花出让给别人。那么assignor 需要注意的问题:

1) 在转让之前,Assignor 一定要和开发商咨询楼花是否可以转让,如果可以的话,开发商要收取多少费用。这一点非常重要,如果开发商不允许转让或转让费用太高的话,转让就没有了任何意义。(通常在购买合约中有说明可以转让的时期)

2) 和地产经纪商定楼花转让的方式:MLS, Exclusive, 还是Privately.

3) 开发商可能要求受让方assignee 提供贷款证明。

4) 一般来说开发商收取的转让费用是由Assignor 来付的。

5) 需要准备所有和原购买合同相关的文件。

6) 如果assignee最终没有履行合同,Assignor 仍然有责任履行原合同,这一点很重要。

7) Assignor 需要付的费用有:A) 法律费和相关支出B) 发展商收取的费用C) 地产经纪的中介费楼花受让方,在英文中叫做Assignee

Assignee 需承担的责任和需付的费用:

1) 委托买方地产经纪起草楼花转让合同,并请律师审查合同条款。

2) 在入住是需付的费用有: A)押金, B)预估的地税,C)预估的Condo管理费用,D)利息,一般来说Assignee 要交给发展商几张远期支票。

3) 在最终交付时,assignee需要支付给发展商的费用有:A) 二年内的地税B) 电,水,煤气表的安装费和接入费(每个表$500-$700)C) 发展费或城市建设费几千不等,最好能有个Cap.D) Tarrion 新屋质量保证($600-$1900)E) 发展商的贷款清算费用(Discharge of builder’s mortgage, 约$200-$300)F) 发展商处理转让方押金支票的费用(约$250)G) 2个月的Condo准备金H) 购买合同规定中的其他需付的费用。

4) Assignee 还需付下面的附加费:A) 法律相关的费用和支出B) 土地转让费(省或市)C) GST/HST的折扣D) 市府的土地征用费用。

5) 在Condo 登记以后,发展商把产权转让到Assignee名下的时候,Assignee需要把余款付给发展商,同时把在转让合同中规定的,欠Assignor 的钱付给Assignor ,整个过程才算结束。


例如,你购买的CONDO有两个CLOSING的日期:Occupancy Closing 和Final Closing。前一个Closing是拿钥匙,后一个Closing是拿产权。有一些开发商允许只有拿钥匙后才可以转让楼花;也有一些开发商要等他的房子卖掉85%以后,你才可以转手;有的甚至根本不允许原始购房者在拿到产权以前转让楼花。所以买家在买楼花时就必须了解清楚。如果发展商为了促销,的确给了你权利在任何时候可以转让,在购房合同里面一定会有相应的条款,售楼中心里的销售人员的口头承诺是不具有法律效应的。有的人可能是因为为了避免产权转让时可能发生的产权转让费和律师费,所以才考虑在Final Closing前转让楼花。

但是转楼花时,你会发现地产开发商一样要向你收取$3000.00到$5000.00不等的Assignment Fee。另外,即使开发商允许你转让,但由于拿钥匙时你还没有产权,房子不能上MLS,楼花的买家和买家的地产经纪人只能运用有限的个人渠道去推销所拥有的楼花单位。让我们从心理学的角度来分析一下:投资Condo要想有好的回报,就必须要找到真正需要住现房,喜欢新房,而在某一段时间内又找不到其他可以替代的现房的买家。



即使市场行情一直比较好,到时候如果没有有效的渠道找到买家,而你又必须要抽出资金。很有可能不是别人给钱让你赚,而是你得割肉让别人赚钱!事实上,在CONDO如雨后春笋般冒出来的今天,总有新屋可买,如果同样是期房,谁又来买你加价的楼花呢!因此,买楼花不能有黄牛心态。拿到钥匙后,先租一段时间,等拿到产权以后,可以同时做两个Listing, 一个For Sale, 一个For Lease。利用MLS系统,能卖个好价钱就卖掉,即使买卖市道不好,能租个好价钱就先租着,要有长期打算。

其二,很多人对买楼花后的费用估计不足,以为只有交定金的钱就行了,其实这里面还有很多费用。在拿到钥匙后和拿到产权前,大概6――8个月的时间,你需要交Occupancy费、预估地税和预估管理费,由开发商代收代缴。还有律师费、Land Transfer Fee(土地转让税)。如果是自住,首次买房,你可以免掉最高至2000元的土地转让税;如果是投资,即使是首次买房,也不能免掉这部分费用。如果你要转楼花,需要付给开发商3000-5000元的Assignment Fee。

另外,无论是转楼花(Assignment)还是拿到产权后卖掉,都要考虑一个Marketing Fee以及经纪的佣金。任何投资都是有风险的,谁都不能保证楼花在几年后一定涨价。如果要投资CONDO楼花,无论从心理和资金上都要做充足的准备,资金不足最好不要涉足,更不要借钱来炒。每个家庭,每个人的财务状况不同,思维方式不同,投资心态不同。同样一种投资,其回报率可能千差万别。凡事三思而后行,千万不要盲目跟风!最近总有朋友来问,从建筑商手里买了个楼花(期房), 现在想在final closing 之前转手,应该注意哪些税务问题呢?通常,我们说买楼花有三种目的:自住,出租,转让

1. 自住 –如果和建筑商签合同(Purchase and Sale Agreement)时,已经声明是自住(primary residence) , 建筑商会代办申请新房 HST rebate, 并把能够拿回的rebate做到房价里面。一切不用自己操心。合同上的价格就是最后的价格,买家不需要额外再付 HST。注意:如果final closing 之后没有按时搬入,而是转手卖出,这个行为就使该房不符合“自住房”的概念了 (因为没有“住”)。CRA会追回已经发放的 HST rebate。

2. 出租 –如果和建筑商签合同(Purchase and Sale Agreement)时,声明房子将用于出租,那么买家除了要付给建筑商原始房价之外,还要付个13%的HST。当然,这个HST可以通过填表申请HST rental rebate从CRA拿回相当多的一部分来。这个rebate 申请通常建筑商不负责,需要自己来做。

3. 转让 –在Occupancy/Final Closing之前就转让 (assignment) 。相当于,在没有拿到产权证之前,把原来的购房合同卖给接手的买家。问题最多的就是这个楼花转手”。 下面就重点讲讲这部分:首先,要知道,不是所有的楼花都可以转让的。有些建筑商就明文规定,不许转让楼花。这就一定要等到final closing 之后,再进行转让。其次,还有一些建筑商,会给买家这个自由(购房合同里会写),可以转让楼花。尽管合同里有这个条款,在进行转让之前,通常还是要得到建筑商的书面同意。因为在closing之前转让这个楼花,就意味着这一纸合同是建筑商和新买家之间签署的了。有的建筑商会收取一个费用, 几千块不等 (这个费用通常也是有HST的)。有的建筑商为了吸引买家,就干脆不收。从GST/HST的角度来说,“Builder”这个概念并不一定意味着就是原始建造房子的人。第一手买家同样也可以被视同为”builder”. 请看下面几种情况:

例一:村长,师哥,和笨猫三人共同租住在一栋3个卧室的DT小房子里。2015年1月,他们终于凑够了份子钱,和建筑商签订一购房合同,购买一湖景高级公寓one-bedroom condo。 合同上注明,购入价为50万, closing date 预计为2018年7月。2016年2月,湖景公寓身价暴涨。村长师哥和笨猫分别收到几个offer想购买他们手中的湖景楼花。彻夜研究后,三人决定将楼花转手给美女丫丫小姐。交易成功后,三个男人分了钱,欢欢喜喜各自回老家娶媳妇去了。分析:从CRA的角度看,三个大男人买个one-bedroom的小condo本身就不现实, 真的要住吗?怎么住?他们考虑了几个offer最后决定卖给丫丫。从这个层面来说,他们仨人购房的intention 就并非为了自住,而是为了转手卖钱。最终转手成功可以说是 in the course of a business or adventure or concern in the nature of trade. 因此,村长师哥和笨猫可以被视为GST/HST意义上的”builder”. 既然是builder, 他们卖新condo (make a taxable supply) 就是要收HST的。

例二:陈总和夫人带着三个孩子住在4个卧室的大别墅内。他们只有这一套房。2015年1月,陈总携同夫人与一家建筑商签署了一购房合同,购买林间one-bedroom高级公寓。购入价为50万元,预计closing date为2016年1月。在2015年12月,趁着还没有入住,陈总和夫人决定把condo卖了,卖价60万。他们用赚的钱给自己的大别墅又加盖了一层。分析:从CRA的角度看,尽管陈总和夫人从来没有倒房历史,但是一家五口人买个one-bedroom的小condo也是有悖常理的, 一看就不是真心想住。从这个层面来说,他们购房的intention 就并非为了自住,而是为了转手卖钱。最终转手成功可以说是 in the course of a business or adventure or concern in the nature of trade. 因此,陈总和夫人可以被视为GST/HST意义上的”builder”. 既然是builder, 他们卖新condo (make a taxable supply) 就是要收HST的。

例三:牛魔王和铁扇公主带着三个孩子住在3个卧室的糖豪斯内。2015年1月,他们与建筑商签署了一购房合同,购买渔人村一4-bedroom大豪斯。大豪斯离孩子们的学校很近,走路可达,大豪斯离牛魔王的单位也近,夏天老牛可以骑自行车上班,可以省下不少油钱。大豪斯的closing date是 2016年7月。在2016年1月,牛魔王和公主卖掉了3卧的糖豪斯,搬到一处租房暂住,打算等新房可以入住后立即搬入。但是,计划没有变化快,2016年6月,铁扇公主的母上大人重病,不能自理,要求和他们同住便于伺候。老牛和公主一商量,觉得这样子4卧的大豪斯貌似不够住了,为了母上大人,得买个更大更豪的豪斯才行。所以,他们在closing之前,把4卧室的大豪斯卖了。分析:从CRA的角度看,老牛和公举卖掉了原来的住房,搬到租屋暂住,新购入的4卧大豪斯距离上学上班都近,这些证据足以说明他们买房自住的意图真实可信。尽管后来并没有如期搬入,而是卖了4卧大豪斯,那也是有特殊原因的 (change in personal circumstances – 有了母上大人的加入,新房不够住了)。所以,从CRA看来,他们不是为了卖房而买房,所以,从GST/HST的角度看,老牛和公主不是”builder”, 他们卖房不收HST.

例四:2015年1月,大灰狼和建筑商签署了一购房合同,购买士嘉堡一新房,自住。新房离单位近,离家更近。Closing date2016年7月。在2016年1月,大灰狼的单位搬迁到纽约,为了保住工作,大灰狼决定前往纽约,和单位共存亡。临走,大灰狼卖掉了手里的新房楼花。分析:从CRA的角度看,大灰狼买房自住,卖房的唯一原因是单位搬迁。因此,从GST/HST的角度看,大灰狼不是”builder”, 他卖房不收HST.

Assignment fees 楼花转让费买楼花,通常原始买家要先给建筑商付一个deposit。 转手楼花之时,原始买家还要赚上一笔。如果,像上面的例一和例二里讲的,卖楼花行为是taxable, 要收取HST的,那么接手的新买家就要在谈好的转让价的基础上,再付一个13%的HST。举个例子:珍妮和建筑商签了一购房合同,当天付deposit 一万元。一个月后,珍妮把“楼花”转手以一万五卖给了彼得。如果这个交易属于例一和例二的情况,那么新买家彼得要在整个儿的一万五的基础上,再交13%的HST。彼得需要付 $15,000*1.13= $16,950。

楼花转手后的 HST rebate 怎么办?对原始买家来说:1. 如果原始买家被视同为builder(看例一,例二), 他的转手楼花的行为需要收HST,他就不再符合HST rebate 的条件 (因为买房已经不是为了自住)。2. 甚至当原始买家不是builder (看例三,例四), 转手楼花不需要收HST,他也同样不再符合HST rebate的条件 (因为没有ownership, 在ownership到手之前就已经转让出去了)。总之,楼花转手,原始买家必须退回 HST rebate.

对接手的新买家来说:1. 如果符合申请新房HST rebate的条件 (自住/出租),就可以申请这个rebate。总之,接手楼花,新买家可以重新申请 HST rebate.注意:当楼花转手之后,可能存在俩个“builder”了。一个是真正建房的建筑商,另一个是原始买家。这种情况下,接手的新买家通常要把GST/HST付给建筑商 (for the purchase of the new home)还要付给原始买家 (for the purchase of the interest in the new home).比如:新房总价为30万。小王是原始买家,和建筑商签好合同,付了deposit $10,000. 几个月后,小王把楼花合同转卖给大刘,商定的交易价为$15,000. 大刘接手后,需要付给小王 $15,000*1.13 = $16,950; 在final closing之时,要付给建筑商购房的尾款,和13%的HST。一个新房只能有一个new housing HST rebate. 大刘接手后,就不能再通过建筑商来代办新房的HST rebate, 也不能同过原始买家小王来申请 rebate. 相反, 大刘可以直接跟CRA提交 – 把付给建筑商的,和付给小王的 HST 分别列在申请表上一起申请。
