A termite inspection report is a document produced by a licensed pest control company stating the presence or absence of termites and other wood-destroying pests in a building being inspected. Termite inspection reports are required in many states whenever a home or other structure is sold.
If no termites are found during the inspection, the termite inspection report is typically provided right away. However, if signs of termites are found, the seller is often required to eliminate the pests. A second inspection after the treatment is required in order to receive a valid termite inspection report. If any termites are found in the structure for 30 to 90 days after the date of the report, depending on the terms of the contract, the termite inspection company is responsible for any further treatment and damage repair.
