Please read my terms and conditions if you require my services, as often there is no time for full exchange of written contracts when a survey is required. When employing Paul Fay to carry out a survey it is assumed that you have read and understood and accepted my terms and conditions.
It is worth checking that the surveyor you are employing is totally independent and is not affiliated to any organisation that may have a commercial interest in selling the vessel or carrying out repairs on the vessel to be surveyed.
When you order a survey the surveyor is working for you and no one else. The report is owned by you and allthough you may need to show it to others they have no authority to use it or take any action without permission and I suggest discussing this with your surveyor before disclosing the report to a third party.
Be sure that your surveyor is quoting for the type of service recommended by an accepted body such as the International Institute of Marine Surveyors. My advice is to check that your surveyor has gone through one of the recognised training schemes.
I have been surveying yachts and small craft up to 150ft in length for 30 years and I am a fully International Institute of Marine Surveying qualified surveyor.
If your surveyor is not trained and qualified it is possible that the survey will be of very poor quality not following international guidelines and not be acceptable for other purposes such as obtaining insurance or finance etc.
