House with drainage issues?
Looked at another house today:
Robinson Twp - NWA Real Estate - 20 Fawnvue Drive, Robinson Twp - NWA, PA, 15136
The house itself is attractive. The interior is pretty much immaculate and will need next to nothing. It is very close to my current home and in a very nice neighborhood.
The problem is the hillside behind the house. It offers a lot of privacy but it is a source of drainage issues.
There was water running down the hillside while we were there even though it has not be raining in about a week, There is a drain the runs diagonally across the hillside that appears to shunt most of the water into a catch basin. There is a retaining wall running the length of the hillside with French drain on both sides of the wall.
Any drainage experts out there? Should I walk away? There just aren't that many place for sale here in my price range.
