Keller Williams Estates Calabasas
All new construction in areas known to have surface faults are required to have geological studies done. This is where they dig a hole 8 feet deep the entire length of the proposed construction plus 50 feet each side.
Compaction, percolation and other soils studies are needed for pools, driveways, foundations, septic systems ..... etc.
I didn't look at the age of your house so it may have been built prior to the newer codes. Not all counties or for that matter the person behind the counter in the county office is going to require the same thing.
Talk with the neighbors (plural as in 20+), talk with the HOA, call your insurance agent and give them the address. They will know if there are any problems in the neighborhood.
An owners disclosure is the last thing I'd rely on as proof of a problem free house. The seller and agent are long gone with your money from the sale while you're left to deal with the problem, litigation, and insurance claims to remedy the situation.
I am a Calabasas agent and am available to further assist if you need
I've located the property in question.
I don't see any up front disclosure regarding your issue. Where did you get your info from?
If you are not currently with a realtor researching this for you, I'd be happy to.
