Re: Post Survey Cost Estimates

Andy, it sounds like you guys have got a working relationship. As long as the seller is going to do proper repairs (not kludges) on the big things, like the deck compression, then you should be OK.

The surprise bill from the marina means they are sharks. Any reputable business will make it very clear up front when they are going to charge you an estimate fee, and in many states the law REQUIRES contractors, mechanics, tv repair shops, etc. all to post it in writing and get your written consent before they can charge you for that. o protect the public from sharks. Three hours...well, call it an expensive reality check vs. the survey and a shark alert.
