We have been in our home for nearly 7 years, which we purchased just after construction.
I have noticed for some time that on one corner that from the 2nd course of brick work that it has slowly slipped forward 5 to 10mm.
Who would I get to check this out a bricklayer or engineer?
These pics are from a while ago, its out further now.

3 in 1 Supadiverta. 0.75mm filter. No downpipes diverted. Can delete overflow pipe. Cleaner Neater Cheaper
Supa Gutter Pumper. An inexpensive gutter overflow solution.

From my experience the footing may not be a 100% in that corner.If you dig up the corner and see if the footing extends out to form a proper rebate for the brickwork.Probably won't be a huge issue but best to have a look.

You could also consider cut and fill rather than straight cut.This may cost you more in earthworks, retaining walls and piers for your slab but save you on significant rock issues.

when you build up to an easement the foundations have to be deeper and stronger so the relevant authority can dig the drain up without your garage falling down
