I purchased property and later found out it floods because the home was built on a filled in sinkhole. The P&Z approved it as a lot split contingent on the city engineer desiging a retention area behind the home. There was no plat prepared. P&Z approved the combining of two parcial parcels previously split and then resplit into three more lots. I later found out that there were only 4 voting members out of a commission of 10 that were actually at this meeting and voted yes, so it was not a legal vote. Building permits were issued without a lawfully approved plat or lot split. I think this constitutes a dangerous concealed defect. Does anyone know that statute of limitation for Missouri regarding this matter. Who would be responsible for the situation. The city issued the permit to the builder. So who is responsible the builder, P&Z, city engineer? The city engineer sent a letter to the city admin, so the city had knowledge and took no action to stop an unlawful build. The city engineer knew a sinkhole had been filled and built on a stated so in his letter. The home was built in 1988 and I bought it in 2008. I had to hire engineers to find out why it flooded and they determined that it is because it is a sinkhole and was never platted. By allowing it to be processed as a lot split it allowed the builder to proceed without a plat which whould have to have denoted the sinkhole and any drainage areas. Yes, I know I am now responsible but this is just not right.
