1.Dear *****, I know this is not what you want to hear, but in this situation, you are best off get together with the other residents and hire a professional person privately to review the sewage and present the necessary report to Leitrim County Council. The reality is that if you wait for the builder to do so, you will be tempting a fate worse than death. Most of the builders in Leitrim have solvency difficulties, so any spare money won't go on preparing a sewage report for a development long since sold. There is no benefit for the builder in doing this work. he has long since been paid for the houses. So, rather than wait for him to do so, you are better, with the other residents to take matters in hand and ensure that the green areas get transferred over to the Council as soon as possible. This will ensure that future maintenance, such as to the lights, sewers, internal roads, all get done by the Council. The quicker this gets done the better. Be aware that you can get this done privately and then send the bill to the builder. However, this might be tempting fate!
