I don't know where you are calling from (and wish I didn't have to keep asking) but where I come from, this is a common occurance, relating IMO to compaction of the soil around your house at the time it was built. Normally thay don't spens a lot of time putting down the proper drainage for slabs nd just pour right onto the loose backfill; so with time a corner of the slab may sink.

Now where you are you might have a service in the YP called 'slab- jacking' and its a process of injecting mortar underneath the slab thereby raising it up where needed.

Consider that. I mean it really depends on the size of the slab, but for example 10'x4' walkway slab can easily be jacked in an afternoon...If you put paver on top of the slab, the extra weight may just make it worse. But once the slab level and true, the water into your basement can then be rectified.
