HST on new build
For a brand new build, I know there is HST involved...i recently went to a sales office and to see about buying a new build, I expressed my concern about the price + HST as its already in the 660k range. His response is "no if the house is for you there is no HST added...HST is only added if you're going to resell it or rent it".
But my understanding is when I see the double sided accounting there is HST, so in this example the HST would be almost 80k, so if all the HST was included the net price of the house would be 580+ 80 to equal HST, but from new sale home agreements ive seen only part of the HST is included in the price and they still charge a portion to the buyer.
Is there any way I can have the sales agreement amended by my lawyer to specifically state that the price i'm purchasing is INCLUSIVE of hst costs so i dont have to pay a huge amount extra at closing. I've lived in my home for 10+ years and really wanting to go up in size, but if I have to pay 40-50k+ extra in Hst added to the home price (of his particular one im interested in), then i'll be priced out.
Any feedback would be helpful, thank you
