Holding Builder reponsible for damage caused indirectly to you home A Local builder has built a new single family home beside our existing home. The lot was dirt filled at a higher elevation and also graded partially towards my home. Therefore creating problems with water drainage on the side yard between the two houses.I understand the new house is sold but it has not closed yet (pending buyers first home sale)I have spoken with the builder and he assured me that it will correct the defect somehow (some french drain ideas have been discussed but no agreement has been reached) I am afraid this issue is on the builder's "back burner" and I have not seen any attempts for work yet on the last 60 days since when the problem was first presented to him.I like to draft some type of letter or seek some legal council to see if this would increase the level of attention so the problem can be corrected before closing of the new house.Would you agree with this plan?. Any advise?
