Drain Added to Lot After Contract Signing
Hi there. Im having a new home built out of state. I recently went to check on it and, unfortunately, the builder has added a large cement-topped drain in my back-yard about 20' from my back porch (the lot is about 25' deep). I understand the need for drainage easements, the problem is the large industrial-looking cement top that makes it very unsightly (esp in such a small yard--about 18" high and about 4-5" across). I was not made aware of any easements on the lot when I signed the contract (as a firs-time buyer, I didn't even think to ask for a plat map). I have photos that show there was no cement structure when I signed for the lot. The truth is, I love the home...but my dream home does not contain a cement sewer-drain looking device in my yard. Any opinions/thoughts? I don't want the home since the lot has been modified (need for a drain was not disclosed prior to contract signing nor after). I would accept the same home on a different lot, though. Pls advise. Thank you.
