Is a survey a legal document
I had a similar problem. I seem to remember some boiler plate at the end of the survey which attempts to limit the surveyor''s liability. Anything he finds should go in the survey report. Telling you over the phone is worthless. I would talk to your attorney. The guy should have professional liability insurance to cover things like this. Also, he you let me know how it works out? My surveyor was also grossly negligent in the survey of my boat. So far I have had to do major fiberglass stringer work, rudder repairs, 2 stuffing boxes, a new engine, etc. etc. My survey was done in the Chesapeake area.. Good luck.
