When Andrew P. Geisterfer had trouble reaching a lawyer by phone, he decided to solve the problem himself by becoming a lawyer.

Find real estate lawyer Andrew Geisterfer, a top Alberta estate probate lawyer on estate planning in Edmonton and Alberta wills and estates law for people with no will, needing legal help to prepare a will.

Edmonton lawyer Andrew P. Geisterfer is a trusted provider of legal services for real estate transactions and Wills & Estates law.

He was admitted to the Alberta Bar in 1996 and was hired almost immediately by a large Edmonton firm, where he handled a variety of legal matters related and specialized in bankruptcy and insolvency, debt collection, bank foreclosures and Supreme Court of Canada appeals.

In 2000, he founded the River City Law Group, an Edmonton law firm specializing in residential and commercial real estate, Wills and Estates, and Corporate Commercial matters.

Legal Scenario

Leaking basement

"I moved into my new home in early January and at that time there appeared to be no issues with my basement. However, when the usual spring thaw came in April I noticed that my basement was leaking. What should I do?"

What Would Andrew Recommend?

This scenario highlights the importance of having a property inspection done before you sign a deal. A property inspector is trained to see thing you don’t see. For example, in the winter, when everything is frozen, you are not going to see any water accumulation in your basement and you may therefore assume it is dry. A trained and experience home inspector will look for stains on a wall or other indicators that there was a leak during the summer months. It’s even better if you also have the sellers expressly warrant that the property has never been subject to flooding and they are not aware of any flooding issues with the home. That way you have a legal recourse if it turns out that they were not being honest.
