Dear Real Estate Ethicist,

The hill below my house is slipping. My brother is an engineer, and he confirmed it could be a problem for my neighbor in the future. I have no money to fix it: $75,000, can you believe it? I am tempted to sell the house and wipe my hands clean of this problem. –Hillslide hysterical

Dear Hysterical,

You need a lawyer not an ethicist.
