What Is YOUR Best Translation of this ?

"Insofar as manifestations of functional deficiencies are agreed by any and all concerned parties to be imperceptible and are so stipulated, it is incumbent
upon said heretofore mentioned parties to exercise the deferment of otherwise pertinent maintenance procedures."

I read 4 times and kept getting lost in the fancy words, so to me it means "we will find a way to screw you over because you are way too stupid to ever know what we are saying"

Re: What Is YOUR Best Translation of this ?

Surveyor talk for: since the owner and the buyer agree that these noted discrepencies on the vessel are not serious (enough) for the current owner to pay for their being corrected, they will be deferred until the new owner can do/pay for them.

Sounds like language left over from when it was a seller's market.

My best legalise translates to this.

"we have agreed that there are functional deficiencies but, since there are no symptoms thereof, we agree not to address the aforementioned functional deficiencies with appropriate maintenance."

I am not a lawyer and so I may be entirely mistaken but I don't think so.

My advice, get a lawyer to review this and, if you won't/can't, walk away.

Good luck!

Tropicalescape may have summed it up better than me.

It's good enough to pass for ok.
Let the new owner fix it the right way.
