Does a normal inspection by a home inspector include a Termite Inspection, and does that require a seperate form for a Termite Inspection?


Forgive my newbish ways, please, and thank you.

Hi Gale,


no it's not a bumb question, whether or not a home needs a seperate termite inspection is usually down to the lender, FHA/VHA require that a termite ispection be done in most areas of the country.

If I see termite activity in a non FHA/VHA inspection I put so in the report, with a recomendation that a licensed pest inspector be called to evaluate the home (They always find more damage than I would have done !!)

Regards

Gerry

I’ll have to disagree with the dumb question question. I did a termite inspection at the same time as a home inspection. My client asked me since I didn’t find anything, could she get her money back for the termite inspection. icon_eek.gif As you can guess, I told her NO. If I didn’t find anything wrong during the home inspection, she might have asked for that money back also.
