The Beginning and End of Charters

"Charterer's Legal Liability"

Author:  David Tantrum

Published:  June 1999


David Tantrum explains the role of the charterer's surveyor when evaluating damage issues.


In the simplest terms, a damage to ship or cargo is distributed between hull, cargo or liability underwriters.  But when the ship is sailing under a charter party or a sub-charter party (or for that matter a sub-sub-charter party), things become more complicated.


David provides guidance in order to reduce confusion and enable the surveyors for all parties to do their jobs.
