Even with the clause, you want a reduction for cause, the seller has to make the same decision they would, without the clause. I'd call it just a little gamesmanship, ignore it.
I fully agree with this assesment.

When you've come to the point of surveying a boat, you're at the point of "hold your nose and jump in". If the survey turns up unexpected warts you can still make a lower offer or walk, knowing the survery cost was really a savings.
