Termites can be devastating to a home now and it’s value in the future, so it’s only logical that termite inspections be required when buying a house, right? Well, it might come as a surprise to learn that inspections are not mandatory in all cases.
Homeowners are typically required to have termite inspections at the discretion of their insurance providers or lenders.
How Much Damage Can Termites Really Cause?
Termites may be small, but they typically live in large colonies and, don’t forget, there’s strength in numbers. It’s also possible to go years without knowing that they’re in the walls silently destroying the home.
Additionally, the destruction that termites are capable of is by no means minimal. In the United States, termites cause an average of $5 billion in damage each year. The costs of termite treatments and damage repair can be well into the thousands. In extreme situations, the cost of repairs can be more than the value of the home.
Should Homeowners Get a Termite Inspection if it’s Not Required?
According to District Pest Control, the short answer is, yes. It’s highly recommended. This applies to not only the house-buying process, but to routine maintenance as a homeowner, too. In fact, it’s recommended that you have your home annually inspected for new termite activity, as they are constantly feeding and foraging around your neighborhood.
