Legal Q&A | Can I use an Appraisal Addendum to help my buyer stand out?

QUESTION: The owner of a home I recently listed showed me a certified letter he just received from a neighbor. The neighbor is angry about water runoff from my client’s property that the neighbor claims is damaging her property, and is demanding that the seller take remedial action. The seller told me that he had some grading work done a year ago to enable a better flow of storm water away from the foundation of his home. My questions are, one, does the neighbor have any legal basis for a claim of this nature, and two, do I have to disclose this matter to prospective buyers?
