Greetings Glen:)  I'm looking to buy my first home and came across a nice property.  However I am concerned with the backyard wall which is at the base of a hill (containing the rest of the neighborhood?).  Perhaps the attached pictures illustrate the situation.  Thanks and any insight is appreciated!

Answer
Hey Roger- Interesting indeed! OK so there are a few things I would like to know......when was that wall built? Are there records as to how it was built? It looks straight and true as it stands, but.......your concern does not go unwarranted...
Let me know what you can find out.
Best,
Glen
