RRSP Home Buyers Plan

With the prices of real estate continuing to rise, getting a proper down payment for some may need to come from ones RRSP via the Home Buyers Plan. The HBP allows one to withdraw money from the RRSP account to be used for down payment of the real estate property.

Repay your Home Buyers Plan Loan

When the time comes for you to start paying back on your loan, the CRA will send out a HBP Statement of Account. This is a yearly notice that is included within your income tax notice of assessment. This will show the withdrawn amounts and also show the amount that is left to repay in total and the amount that is due that year. Repayments to this can be made in the same time format of your RRSP contributions.

Generally you will be looking at repaying this over the course of 15 years, with paying back yearly 1/15th of the total amount. Granted you can pay it back at a higher rate, but this is the minimum requirements. So essentially you will be repaying this loan until the HBP balance is back to zero.

Bankruptcy and your Home Buyers Plan Payments

With regards to your HBP and your real estate property. If you either decide to sell or if for some unfortunate event you are forced to file for Bankruptcy, you are still required to repay/make your Home Buyers Plan repayments. Any remaining payments have to be reported as income.

If you have Home Buyers Plan payments remaining when your RRSP matures for the year that you are 69, the remaining HBP loan amount must be either fully repaid or it will need to be reported as income.

If You Do Not Repay

If you opt to not repay your Home Buyers Plan, the amount that you are owing for that particular year, will be included as income and it will be subjected to tax as well.

I was quite nervous and a little embarrassed that I needed financial advice. I met with Jerry Janiec and he was very helpful. He made me feel comfortable and explained everything in easy to understand terms so that I understood what my options were. I would recommend David Sklar & Associates for anyone in my position.

Recently dealt with Christine at David Sklar & Assoc. and worked out a Consumer Proposal to put forth to my creditors for my Credit Card debt. She was very courteous, professional and put me at ease with a proposal that I can afford on a monthly basis, which will eliminate my debit in a reasonable timeframe. I would recommend Christine and this firm in a heartbeat. Very happy with the service and attention I got !!

After seeing your commercial play on CP24, I realized that it addressed all the questions and concerns I had about my financial situation. It all started with my one phone call to your office. I had the extreme pleasure of working with Cori Naron at your St. Clair West office in September 2022. She took the time to explain what my options were knowing that it was a very stressful situation with my debt load. She made me feel at ease with my decision to file a consumer proposal and outlined the benefits to me. She is thorough and her attention to detail is outstanding. While it takes a little while to reap the benefits of making this hard decision, she took the time to reassure me that it was in my best financial interest. Well done David Sklar & Associates for having such an amazing representative at your company and for allowing me to "get a fresh start"!
