Home // Real Estate Law // Litigation

There are no quick and easy answers in real estate disputes. That’s why it is so important to ensure your interests are protected and advanced by a lawyer who specializes in real estate litigation, not a general lawyer.

Lawyer in Edmonton Alberta office for civil law case or civil litigation handled by a top corporate litigation lawyer to achieve successful resolution of commercial, business and civil litigation legal matters.

To achieving success in a real estate dispute, you need a lawyer who understands all the issues and has experience working for property owners and property buyers - and that is exactly what you will get by engaging Edmonton lawyer Andrew Geisterfer .

"You need to understand how a real estate dispute is viewed by the various participants, which can include property owners, landlords, tenants, builders and lenders,” explains real estate lawyer Andrew Geisterfer. "A home owner and builder see the same issue very differently. It’s the same with landlords and tenants. But I am able to see a path forward because I have represented both and understand the rights and responsibilities of each side.”

The objective in any real estate dispute is to achieve success without going to court, a costly and time consuming exercise for everyone involved. "It’s always better to achieve a resolution without going to court and, in fact, very few of the cases we handle end up going to court,” Andrew says.

Legal Scenario

Condo Special Assessment

"I am buying a condominium in Edmonton. The seller has indicated that there is a Special Assessment outstanding on the condominium and they have asked me to assume responsibility for it."

What Would Andrew Recommend?

Before accepting this obligation, you need to understand the extent of the Special Assessment and work this into the purchase price. For example, you may decide to revise your purchase price to take into account the negative financial impact of the Special Assessment. The key is to make this decision before the purchase, not after, and to consult with your lawyer before making any decision. Remember: It is your lawyer’s job to look after the details – this could be a very important detail.
