My retaining wall fell 20 feet up my driveway from the entrance. I called my insurance company and was told that there isn’t a lot they can do.

 

So I called the town to see who built it and the old homeowner did 4 years ago! With no contractor! And the building department passed it for inspection.

 

There is no geo grid, no drainage, and dirt as a backfill. I bet you I can pull the rest down by hand.

 

My question is who is responsible? This is not right.

What part of "your property your retaining wall" do you not understand? You could always sue Mother Nature or start another go fund me web page.

Another? Excuse me? If the building department passed it and it fails. You would think the building department didn’t inspect it

Even if the wall was inspected @06kfx440 by the town that does not cover the surrounding grounds.  It could have been a number of circumstances that led up to the wall coming down. Tree roots expanding, untraditional rains we have been experiencing over the last few years, shifting grounds it could be so many things. 

I would think homeowners insurance would be the route to go on this.

I would agree with @Frank Angerano, homeowners insurance. The town or previous owner bear no responsibility. When you buy property here in NY for instance, its as is, and the buyer usually gets a home inspection prior to purchase. If something comes up, its a negotiating tool. There are instances of transferable warranties like on roofs, appliances, etc.

"Another" was just in reference to the ever growing number of people that are looking for others to pay for the problems they own.,

@Freezeman I have to say it’s a little bit out of line brother. All he did was simply ask a question.  There are a ton of people out there that are always looking for a break. Not @06kfx440 !

I can personally tell you I’ve rode with him and also met his kids as well as some of his friends,  he’s a good man. I actually caught up with him last week in the city for a few cold ones. He is not looking for anything free by far!

      I just helped my brother order a replacement pull-start/recoil start assembly for his 83-89(not sure witch year) Suzuki quad.  It did not come with the part that sits inside between the engine starter shaft and recoil start assembly,  that mounts to the engine and has teeth that catch the recoil start to turn over the engine.  I can't remember what its called and can't look the part to order.

      I have a job to to. My retaining wall collapsed and was all over my driveway. This happened about a week ago. The previous owner had it installed. They used 6"x4" block that was glued together. It's approximately 4' high and 70' long.
       
      To my knowledge they should have used 12"x8" interlocking bricks that needed bracing to go into the hill behind it. My insurance company will cover the cost of material and labor. But I've done this before and if I can make some money on it, then why not diy. Any thoughts on what to use

      The battery box on my machine kind of fell apart and I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else and what they did to rebuild the box.
