concerning surveyors

I have just found the boat of my dreams and my broker, who is a certified Marine Surveyor, has offered to inspect the boat free of charge saving me the five hundred or so an independent surveyor might charge. My question is: are marine surveyors legally bound in any way to report the condition of the boat honestly and accurately? Or is this one a moot question and I should just cough up the five hundred with not conflict of interest?
