Re: Working with sellers who refuse a pending survey contract
If he likes the boat, make an offer pending survey. If the seller won't do that, and he still wants the boat, hire a surveyor. Have the survey and then finish the deal. If someone else walks up, he might be out the cost of the survey. What I wouldn't do is buy it without a survey. A survey makes it so much easier to get insurance, and can save you a lot of money if the surveyor finds something expensive!!
