How Can We Help You with the Buying Process?
At Zinati Kay – Real Estate Lawyers, we know all the ins and outs of the buying process. We can help you understand your Agreement of Purchase and Sale, as well as your rights and obligations before final closing. We can also help you understand what the seller’s rights and obligations are.
One of the biggest mistakes a buyer can make during the home buying process is agreeing to something in the Purchase Agreement that is not in their best interests. Believe it or not, this happens more often than you’d think since it’s usually a large and lengthy document that details many different things that the buyer may not fully understand. While your real estate agents can offer you invaluable advice when buying a home, you also have the option to have a real estate lawyer review the agreement before you sign it.
When you work with our experienced lawyers, we will provide you with advice and knowledge that will ensure you get what was agreed upon. We can recommend any provisions or changes that should be made to the agreement and will always have your best interest in mind. We will also ensure that the home you purchase is free of liens, debts, mortgages, title defects, etc.
What Are Our Fees?
Buying a new home in Toronto is expensive and it can be frustrating to see hidden fees and costs show up along the way. When you work with our real estate lawyers, you won’t have any surprises. There is nothing to pay or sign up for up front. We offer fixed closing costs at $999, which includes courier fees, internal disbursements, and written review of status certificate or new home purchases. The only costs you apply are the costs of your Title Insurance and your land transfer taxes, registrations, disbursements permitted by law society rules for government charges, and H.S.T. This approach helps you manage your budget and gives you peace of mind in knowing how much it will cost to close the transaction.
