In a subdivision, a house that sits on a hill with the back of their lot facing a lake has a retaining wall that is severely bulging; noticably only when wlaking along the lake. Who is responsible for the lateral support? And is the agent responsible for diclosing this information even if they didn't know due to not walking the trail (sidewalk) around the lake?

The entity responible for the retaining depends upon who owns the land.  If the homeowner owns, then the homeowner has to make the repair.  If it's owned by the HOA or rather denoted as a common element, then the HOA must repair in order to maintain lateral support.

The agent only can disclose what is know by the agent.
