Re: Survey say's.......
But, I challenge anyone to find a surveyor who is willing to legally stand behind what they state in these reports. Until that happens it will remain a useless piece of paper.
But yet a necessary one..
For the universal disclaimers of liability I blame the strongly litigious climate of the past 30 years or so.. once the courts started handing out - in some cases ridiculous - "damage" awards the rest seems inevitable.
