I have an expansion joint in my property that extends to the garage directly underground. Above ground the joint is covered by tiles but the grouting has worn away exposing and eroding the concrete. In the garage underground there is leaking in corner during rain and is visible spalling and deep cracks in the concrete along the joint. Interested to know how severe this is and what can I do about it. The joint straddles mine and neighbours property but neighbour is in cooperative. We are improving drainage on the property and waterproofing the tiles.

Wow ! You may well have to dig down outside and water-proof membrane. Then an ag drain as well. Floor doesn't look that good either.
