Précis: In 2010 two individuals - Charnkamal Hansra and Balvir Bassi – signed an agreement of purchase and sale to acquire a condominium (unit 5, level 20) in a property to be built by Ferncastle (Esplanade) Inc. in Toronto. On closing the deed was issued in the name of BAHA Property Investment Group Inc. The corporation applied for the New Residential Rental Property Rebate which was denied on the basis that it was not named in the 2010 agreement of purchase and sale. The corporation appealed to the Tax Court which dismissed the appeal holding that there was no evidence of an assignment of the rights under the 2010 agreement to BAHA. There was no order as to costs since this was an informal procedure appeal.
