would an issue with the town not connecting sewage drainage pipes causing water damage/flooding on my property be considered a real estate dispute legally or would it have another designation?
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: NY Dutchess County
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: No. apparently the developer and/or town wanted to install drainage for multi-family dwellings in a single family home area so the property owner whose property they would need to install the connection has an issue. I thought there were underground springs and the new construction changed the water tables-but the homeowner whose property they need to access stated it's actually sewage runoff or something similar (not spring water)
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes. Since its wintertime I have an ongoing ice skating ring in my driveway
and my back yard is marshy in the spring. There is a storm drain between my house and my neighbors which I assume is where the connection was supposed to be made. I'd like to know what type of lawyer I would need to get the town to get the water issue addressed (drainage piping connected to stop flooding) and fix my driveway, lawn possible basement/garage flooring.
