Can I use my RRSP to buy a house a second time?

Rounding it up

  • It is possible to take money from your RRSP a second time but you must repay the previous HBP balance and wait four years.

  • There are many alternative incentives and credits available to both first-time home buyers and existing homeowners.

  • Before you prematurely withdraw from your RRSP, think about the potential financial consequences.
