Hi 

Looking at buying a canal boat privately not through a brokers, so would be looking to get legal advice or have a lawyer draw up documents to safe guard me as a buyer.

 

Any advice welcome

 

Regards

To be honest I think your best advice would be to see a lawyer but one of the dangers of buying a boat is that it might not belong to the seller. I would be suspicious if the seller does not have a collection of photographs.  Here's one of us at Stoke Bruerne and here's one of us on dry dock, that sort of thing. Outstanding finance could be trouble but I don't know how you would find that out. Pretty much everything else should be covered by a survey if you have one, then if it goes wrong you can sue the surveyor (!)   Most purchases are troublefree but good luck with yours.

And/or a succession of bills for stuff and services. A lot of private sales of boats are carried out on trust, though.
