In case there were a similar situation you knew or saw,
The rumpus was garage before converted in 70s, conrete slab, brick veneer wall. Noted a back corner sinking several years ago when moved in, and a big tree was removed around that time with stumps grindered.
That corner side seems sinking each year and now the front corner in the same side now have 1 cm gap. Recently tried to get into craw space and noted some water sitting same side, where then identified a downsprout blocked by leaves below ground. The position is about 2 to 3 meters to the sunken corner as mentioned above. Got a plumber to clean out the storm drains and replaced broken part near front and most likely by tree root. It all happens in the same side!
I am thinking what would be reasonable or good to level indoor slab, and Who to engage i.e. a civil engineer first, and timing , let moisture gone say after summer to repair? Any experience or recommendation ? Thanks

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

The issue is that the slab level of garage is lower than surrounding ground level and that there may be a risk of flooding. A competent designer will set levels to either…
