Insist on Termite Inspection Before Buying a House

Posted: July 3, 2015 in Uncategorized

Termites are a detriment in most homes. However, these infuriating pests never cross our mind when we buy a property!


I was looking to buy a house in North Carolina and diligently checked everything from the roof, drains and heating system to the title deed, mortgage, tax bills and what not. The home inspector also gave the house a clean report.     I was ready to sign on the dotted line. Just then, my real estate agent happened to notice a dusty trail along a closed window. On closer inspection, we suspected it to be the work of dreaded termites.

The home seller was genuinely unaware of the silent termite infestation and could not be accused of ‘hiding’ this crucial information. I too was befuddled about what to do, but the agent insisted on a termite inspection at the cost of the owner.

Our suspicions were confirmed as the inspection reported the beginnings of a termite infestation on the property. Still I was in love with the house and wanted to make it my own, but obviously without the add-on of termites. The agents parleyed together and mine expressed a willingness to still take over the property at a reduced price provided it was first divested of all pests completely!

The seller searched for a reliable pest control Waxhaw, and  hired Tactical Pest and Termite Solutions to rid the house of termites.   . The company diligently performed various treatments to eliminate the termites and backed up the service with a satisfaction guaranteed policy.

I happily signed the papers and a decade down the line, have never ever found any termites in the house!
