Re: Tips on buying from a broker

I don't think a broker can give you a survey that doesn't legally belong to them. That is usually a contract between the surveyor, and the person purchasing the survey. Weve run into thst before, and I completely understand.

Re: Tips on buying from a broker

Ran into this issue last year. We had a warranty claim against the manufacturer but put our insurance company on notice. They each hired a surveyor. For me to see the surveys I needed the consent of the insurance company and the manufacturer. It was easy to get. In this case, I'm just guessing that it isn't worth the effort of getting the consent until buyer and seller have agreed on a price (subject to a new survey and if buyer insists review of the recent survey)

The survey was commissioned by the owner earlier this year. Broker brought it with him and I looked it over when I viewed the boat. That's how I knew the cutless bearing was going.

I was offered to buy a survey from a broker for a deep discount. A previous potential buyer had had a survey done and did not buy the boat and the broker was willing to broker a deal on the survey. It made sense to me, so does your scenario.

Re: Tips on buying from a broker

Survey’s become worthless with age. Exactly how much age is hard to define, but as a general rule, I wouldn’t take much comfort in one done for someone else. Unless, it was extremely recent. Also, keep in mind whether it was a pre-purchase or insurance survey. Very different animals.
