Broker vs Surveyor

I have known this surveyor and have hired him on more than one occasion. I did due diligence before I selected him. I was told he was competent and thorough and my experience with him confirms that. I was told that *Buyers love him and brokers hate him*. I asked the broker why he did not like my man and he would not say except to say he would not work with him. I called the surveyor and he was well aware of the situation. Some of his survey clients walked away after he found defects in some of the broker's listings. This is probably the real reason for the rejection. In my mind it is unethical.

SD: I like the reply about broker and ethical in the same sentence being a contradiction. :-)
(Apologies to the few honest brokers out there)

I do plan to contact the owners and appraise them of the situation. This guy's actions could spike a potential sale, and I don't think the owners would appreciate that.
