Cincinnati, OH asked in Civil Litigation and Contracts for Kentucky

Q: How long do you have after buying a house to go after the seller for non disclouser of a problem?

We bought a house almost 2 years ago, when we looked at it there was a corrugated pipe sticking out on the hill in the back yard. We asked what it was and they said a french drain. Fast forward we have found that the hill next to us slid so that dug that hill and part of ours and ran corrugated pipe all in the yard. It appears the neighbors that live on the hill above has all their water run off coming in as well. Our yard is a swamp. What can we do since this was not disclosed?
