Replace concrete block wall

I need to replace three concrete block walls in a
basement. The local contractor gave me a bid but did
not include any sill plate anchor bolts. I asked about
it and he said you don't need any. By code there
should be one every 6 feet. Local codes are not striclty
enforced. He also said that to install them the house
would have to be raised. It is not practical to do
that due to the garage and brickwork. He is going to
support the house, maybe raise it 1/8 inch, take out the ld blocks
and put in a new wall. Is there a way to install sill plate anchor
bolts in a concrete block wall without raising the house??
