Buying a house in Toronto is a complicated and expensive process, which is why you should work with a CityPlace real estate lawyer. The paperwork alone can seem overwhelming to read through and understand, and it may be helpful to have an experienced person by your side to help you process all the information. Other aspects happen quickly when buying a property—hiring house inspectors, negotiating who will cover the cost of repairs, getting title insurance, maintaining a good relationship with the seller, and more. An experienced real estate lawyer can handle these responsibilities as if they are second nature. They also may have contacts that can inspect the home for you and make the buying process easier. Here are some reasons why you should choose Zinati Kay – Real Estate Lawyers when buying or selling a home in Toronto.

Our real estate lawyers in CityPlace, Toronto are one of the longest practising law firms in the area. We have over 22 years of experience in the business, and have been closing deals in this location for over 15 years. Our clients have the convenience of walking into their lawyer’s office without needing transit or parking, and we are familiar with all the buildings in the CityPlace neighbourhood.

Work Portfolio/History

At Zinati Kay – Real Estate Lawyers, we focus on real estate and helping buyers and sellers with our fixed closing costs. We have extensive experience in real estate, and have three lawyers available to help our clients. Our staff has over 50 years of combined experience in the industry and are always available when our clients need questions answered. Also some law firms choose to only complete their title searches online, but we regularly hire a professional title searcher to provide a report for our review before closing. This is our way of going above and beyond for our clients—it comes at no charge to them. We have closed 19,000 real estate transactions without a title claim, and have no plans to slow down.


Our team can help you with multiple aspects of the home buying or selling process. Our expertise is in mortgage refinancing, buying, selling, title insurance, title transfer, title search, and more. We also stay up to date on the standards of landlords and tenants to ensure our clients’ rights are being protected.

Assignment of Condominiums

We also have extensive experience as assignment lawyers and it is a large component of our practice. We have worked on many assignments of condominiums for both buyers and sellers in the area. We are among the busiest Toronto assignment lawyers.

Fixed Closing Costs

During the home buying or selling process, you may realize there are increasing expenses and uncertainty as to what all the costs will amount to, especially your total closing costs. Different firms have different ways of quoting their clients’ closing costs. Some may charge fees for their legal services, including disbursements, title insurance, HST, land transfer tax, and HST. Since the real estate lawyer won’t know what your disbursements are, they will not be able to give you a quote with your total cost. Disbursements vary greatly, often between $350 and $600.

One of the advantages of working with our team compared to other lawyers is that we were one of the first firms to offer fixed closing costs, about 22 years ago. Now, many firms are catching on and doing this for their clients. However, as pioneers of this concept, we want our clients to have full assurance of how much they need to pay. Clients will get their quote without needing to sign up, confirm, or select anything. As you will see stated clearing today on our website our fixed closing costs for quotes, fees, and disbursements, are as follows:

  • Buying a house is $999*
  • Selling a house is $799*
  • Selling without a mortgage is $699*

Our quotes include all the charges you will be paying for, including couriers, written reviews of status certificates, and new home purchases where required. We believe that if your lawyer is going to give you advice he or she should be confident enough to do so in writing.

Direct Appointment

When you make an appointment with Zinati Kay – Real Estate Layers, you will meet with one of our lawyers. At some competitor’s firms, the client is directed to a law clerk, instead of a lawyer. While our law clerks are highly knowledgeable, we believe it’s important for you to be able to sit and meet with a lawyer when closing your transaction. After all, this is who you’ve hired to be responsible for one of the biggest purchases and transactions of your life!

Title Transfer

Some law firms will only complete their title search online to save costs. At Zinati Kay – Real Estate Lawyers, we regularly hire an experienced title searcher to complete her title searches. The benefit of having an extra set of experienced eyes reviewing our clients’ titles is what makes us the trusted team to work with.
