What are the issues associated with a property next to a drainage/retention pond.First time buyers, young couple. We found a property that is great except that it is on a slight hill below a new housing development and just above the property is a drainage/retention pond. There is a high level of moisture in the soil on that side of the house and a large bump in on the basement wall on the same side.
