It depends on the grading problem.

If water is being directed towards OR not being directed away from the homes foundation then it is covered by Tarion because the building code requires settled backfill and general lot grading must slope away from the homes foundation.

If it is grading issues / problems like ponding that does not effect the home or the homes foundation like at the back corner of the property then that is best resolved by complaining the the municipality.

Code Rule Grading of Backfill (1) Backfill shall be graded to prevent drainage towards the foundation AFTER settling.

Code Rule Surface Drainage - Lot Grading (1) The building shall be located on the building site graded so that water will not accumulate at or near the building and will not adversely affect adjacent properties.
