I'm looking at buying a house (around 30 years old) built w/ a walkout wood basement to the north and west. The south wall (w/ dirt against it) has been replaced w/ a cemment block wall. The east wall (w/ partial dirt against it) has a slight bow and shows slight signs of moisture. Is this common? or a bad sign ahead for future problems? How long will this wall last? If problems w/ wall what would repair costs be? I'm very leary of buying this house because of a wood basement especially w/ the east wall as it is! I would appreciate any advice anyone has to offer.
