The neighbors should band together and hire an engineer to inspect and determine a cause for the problem, then the neighbors can retain an attorney to review the situation, talk with the city, and try to find a resolution.
In which court would I file a successor liability suit for a lifetime basement waterproofing warranty that came from a company that is now defunct. The former owner now owns a new, unrelated company that works to fix bowing foundation walls. He used to own a waterproofing business. Thanks!

Tell him if he has it towed, you will sue him for the towing, and report it to the police as car...Read more »
