Liability Issue

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The owner of a townhouse has a water problem into the
basement of the house, and is trying to resolve it with
the builder. The neighbor next door who bought his
townhouse from the same builder is a civil/structural
engineer. Is there any conflict of interest or liability
issues involved, in the event that the civil/structural
engineer look at his neighbor problem and advise the
owner with the water problem. How much the
civil/structural engineer should or should not get
involved with the problem, but Advise his neighbor to
engage another engineer.
Any comments and Suggestions are appreciated.
