Client Moved from House A to House B on 1st Nov 2017. Still owns House A & B. Rented out House A now. Tax Implications?

Facts about the scenario :

House A bought in 2011 for $300K. Value of House $700K now and has refinanced house on this new value to buy House B.

On Nov 2017 bought a new bigger House B for principal residence for $900K.

Rented out House A on 1st Nov 2017. 

Questions ;-

(a) Property tax for ONBEN , I suppose can be claimed from Jan 2017-Oct2017 for House A and then for Nov 2017- Dec 2017 for House B

(b) T776, declaration of rental income for 2 months should be made with corresponding expenses .

(c) Client (client is a commission employee) has 2200 signed by his employer(showing client needs to work from home), so I suppose home office expenses can be claimed for 10 months in accordance with House A and for 2 months on House B.

(d) Last one Principal residence Exemption- how to go about filling this form? This is very confusing. 

(e) Anything else that I need to show on the tax return?

Please if anyone can help me with clarification of what essential steps I need to take to file this complex tax return.

Your response is much appreciated.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
