    Default Retaining Wall Located Within City Easement

    My question involves real estate located in the State of: Texas

    In the rear of my property is a retaining wall. Per the survey, this retaining wall is located within a 5 foot city owned utility easement. The retaining wall is currently failing and needs repair. The retaining wall was installed approximately 30 years ago, likely during the construction of the neighborhood. Also, our neighbors have fences that encroach into this easement and have been notified by the city that they retain the right to remove the fence at any time. Would I be responsible for the repairs, or would the city?

    Can you quote from the deed by which the easement was created?

    Have you contacted the city about this and, if so, what were you told?
