wondering if soil drainage would be a big prob.

inspections show the soil exhibits moisture saturation/sanding water. we're recommended to arrange a state licensed soil drainage contractor to do the evalucation.....
will that be a big prob.... and costly?
we just got to know the neighbor's house foundation sank weeks ago

thanks~

It all depends on the type of soil underneath the top soil.  Traditionally loose particals, sand and dirt can wash away.  Traditionally in high clay content areas, ohio, north carolina ect there is no problems.  What state is your home located in?
