HST on vacant land- first time buyer

Hello,

I'm looking to purchase a lot of vacant land to build a house on for my primary residence and the developer is selling lots + HST on top of the asking price. Is there any way to get a rebate on HST through any government or tax rule that I'm not aware of? My understanding is that the HST rebate for first time home owners is only for properties where an actual structure currently exists.

Thanks!

No there is not.

If you are in Ontario, HST rebate applies, $24,000 if you paid HST on the lot, $16,080 if you did not. Claimed once you take possession of the new house.
