Persons with disabilities

You do not have to be a first-time home buyer if either of the following applies to you:

  • you are eligible for the disability tax credit
  • you acquired the home for the benefit of a related person who is eligible for the disability tax credit

Note

The purchase must be made to allow the person with the disability to live in a home that is more accessible or better suited to their needs. For the purposes of the home buyers' amount, a person with a disability is a person who is eligible for the disability tax credit for the year in which the home is acquired, or a person who would be entitled to claim the disability amount if they did not claim costs for attendant care or care in a facility on lines 330 or 331.

You must intend to occupy the home, or you must intend that the related person with a disability occupy the home, as a principal place of residence no later than one year after it is acquired.
