In Georgia the homeowner had up to 8 years to file a construction defect claim. It is hard to say if they have a strong case without knowing the specifics of the settling issues. It may be cheaper to help them resolve the issues than to litigate but I would have them sign a release that your assistance is not an admission of guilt.
That certainly helps your case but inspections would not really address settlement issues. The engineering report's impact on yoir case would really depend on the results.
Let me know if you have additional questions otherwise a positive rating is appreciated.
