Pros and Cons of using a Broker

DO NOT ask a broker to recommend a surveyor. We made that mistake and our bottom surveyed good. That was not the case. The bottom was not only covered with huge blisters but is delaminating. Very expensive lesson. We have consulted two lawyers and it looks like we have little recourse except that we have learned a very expensive lesson. It seems that most surveyors are uninsured and that they incorporate and leave very little money in the coffer. Beware!!! Sincerly, NL3114
