What if you subsequently learned that the developer illegally disrupted those subterranean drainage lines and improperly connected them to the city storm sewer system so that they would clog up? What if you subsequently learned that the four-home subdivision should have had four more storm sewer inlets than it had? What if you subsequently learned that the home’s footing tiles cracked before the foundation walls were poured because they were not protected from freezing temperatures? What if you subsequently learned that the home’s exterior footing titles were improperly laid? What if you subsequently learned that the city that the subdivision was built in knew all about the aforesaid, but nevertheless let it happen? What if the aforesaid caused major lot drainage problems that forced you to spend many thousands of dollars and many hundreds of hours to mitigate?)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Property drainage issues. . .“After a bit of time, the new owner started to have drainage issues and standing water in the backyard. Through legal depositions, the seller disclosed that when construction on a new development had commenced behind the home, she began to have drainage issues. The developer changed some of his grading and added drain systems to her yard, and she thought the issue was resolved. But because she never disclosed this prior issue, the new owner prevailed in his lawsuit against both the seller and her listing agent.)
