My neighbour has illegally installed 17x 3 strand lateral tie cables in my property, total length of each cable is 14m. The lateral cables are permanent and hold up a retaining wall 10m high x 20m long. An underground garage structure has been built against the retaining wall, but the tension on the cables have not been released/de tensioned.There are three rows of lateral anchors at various depths.Is my ground that these anchors are installed in still under tension/ pressure? In other words, are the 17 x lateral ground anchors still supporting the retaining wall and would the foundations of my house that are in close proximity to the lateral cables be in danger of sagging/ subsidence? The soil is clay and is layered and classified as slip and subsidence.
