I have backup up sewer. Had roto rooter camera and the issue is the clay sewer line has collapsed on my neighbors
property 10" from her foundation. Totally off my property but it is causing me back up. I'm having difficulty thinking this is 100% my liablility.
JA: OK. The Real Estate
Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: No....just happened.
JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Real Estate Lawyer can help you best. Is there anything else the Real Estate Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: Not to my knowledge, no. Sewer line backed up the week of christmas, has it snaked and it appear to at least drain, but not fully functional. Assumed it was tree roots and began putting tree treatment in line. Problem came back Full Force yesterday 2/17, invested in camera to see what was causing the issue. Appears my main goes out the side of my home, not the front to street sewer main, but straight to neighbors house. Camera identified collapse off my property, 10" from neighbors foundation. Before I thought about being responsible, I thought about getting my neighbor's permission to fix it. Her response was she'd want to be assured it wouldn't cause her any issues as a result. This caused me to think, A. How can I assure her me fixing this line on her property not result in any issues for her? B. Am I actually 100% liable to take on this responsibility and the liability for this issue.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Real Estate Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
