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

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.
