Although the initial reason for not hiring a technical consultant in these cases of poor land choice is most likely an attempt to lower design and construction costs, in retrospect it seems obvious that the money spent on the expertise of a geotechnical engineer would have been significantly less than the "millions of dollars of direct losses and litigation costs.
The public area noted was an abandoned school called Adelante high school. The parking lot was in disrepair leaving mostly broken concrete and stone. Black Hills is home to two different parks Coit and Kensington Parks which both looked overgrown and do not seem to be used much. Neither park had equipment for children to play on or trails to walk/ ride on. The picnic tables did not look like they should be in use. The neighborhood had a community garden that was neglected. The sign for the garden had graffiti on it and was falling apart. Thick shrubs and trash were scattered all over the fenced in space of the garden. The observations show the neighborhood is in a state of

This issue of money all began when Mr. Jennings, being the gullible person he was, hired a land surveyor, not a lawyer to write his will.

During the movie “The African Burial Ground: An American Discovery,” it was explained that remains were discovered as a consequence of the planned construction of a Federal office building in Lower Manhattan. This not only created an uproar between the stakeholders and the archaeologists, but it affected the surrounding community due to the insensitivity from the archaeologists.
There is a dirt road, just after you see the northern tip of the lake, or swamp as the locals affectionately call it, and once you turn onto it, you see a number of fairly small homes, some have a new, clean look, and others have a run down, smelly vibe. There’s the brand new house on stilts, (because it floods every spring and fall) and the next house, John’s house, who is a 70 year old man who smokes a pack of cigarettes a day in his living room, and then there is the Weepie residence. Our cabin, placed on a vacant lot in the early 2000’s is a fairly ordinary rectangular one story, the short side of the rectangle facing the dirt road, tan exterior and a boring overall appeal. The landscape is what makes up for the house. There is nice green grass in the front, resembling a lawn you might see in the city, upwards of 20 trees scattered on the lot, and various gardens that look kind of dead. Around the side of the house, passed a gravel driveway, there is one small deck under the cover of trees looking onto the lake and the sunken backyard. A second, much larger deck is

I wonder if it’s an old foundation of a farmhouse or something, Brett thought to himself, but nothing before was ever said about any other buildings existing on their land. Deciding to have a closer look, he dismounted his horse and grabbed an army entrenching tool that he kept tied to the saddle. He went and cleared a path so he could have a closer look. He was surprised to find what looked like an old, flat grave marker. As he cleared away more of the tumbleweeds, he was surprised to discover several other grave markers arranged in two rows. It looked like a small graveyard. Brett brushed away some of the mud and sand that had caked onto one of the grave markers. He noticed that the lettering was shallow but still legible.

Here, the McDowell’s performed an adequate physical inspection of the property and necessary due diligence as required by New York under the doctrine of caveat emptor. In Daly, the buyers similarly performed a physical inspection of the property, but differed in that they failed to perform due diligence regarding the discovery of material fact from the inspection. In Daly, the buyer had a physical inspection performed on the property, it was discovered that there was evidence of previous water intrusion and the buyers were recommended to consult with neighbors and local authorities about the defect. This is distinguishable from the McDowell’s case because they hired a surveyor and inspector to examine the property. The surveyor found that the
