What is the name of your state? IL
We are adding an addition to our home. Using the survey conducted when we purchased home (2004) we had plans drawn up and approved by city. Once foundation was put in a question was raised as to location of new foundation in relationship to property line. When new survey was conducted it turns out the 2004 survey misplaced the existing house by 12 feet. This mistake has lead to the new foundation being 9 feet too close to property line for city set back law. Due to this mistake we will need to have a portion of the foundation re-poured and the addition will be smaller than we intended.
Can we sue the land surveyor (IL licensed professional) for our costs to make modifications to our addition?
