Legal Question

Asked on: 2/17/12, 4:55 pm

In Dec., 2010, we bought a home in a Property Association run golf course community. When it rains, rain water comes out of 2 drain pipes located on the edge of the course (not on our property) and runs down by the side of our house. During a heavy downpour recently, the volume of water was sufficient enough to enter our basement and cause a minor flooding issue (soaked carpeting). We have asked the POA to correct the problem by relocating the drains, or extending them beyond our house to the street. They claim that the golf course was there before the house and they bear no responsibility for correcting it. Do we have any recourse?
