The majority of properties in the San Francisco are listed with a 6% commission. This commission is split by the agent for buyer and the one for seller- 3 percent each.

You did not mention what species of termites, you state, or the type of guarantee you were offered. Orking ususally adds one or two years of renewals into their upfront price when you finanace their treatment cost. You did no mention whether or not you were paying cash or financing.

Regaurdless of the details you omitted, I would venture saying you could get the same job with an equal guarantee less expensive with most other companies. Pick a good medium size company with a good local reputation ask them for a free inspection and quote if needed.. Try asking your neighbors about their termite services. I write extensivly about this in my Homeowner Guid to termite Control at , go ther for a lot more information.

In San Francisco, it is not possible to write a special lease with a pre-set move out date. unless the building was built after June 13, 1979 (or it is one of the rare properties in SF which has qualified for a "substantial rehabilitation" with the Rent Board). Such a provision would be an attempt to get the tenant to prospectively waive his rights under the Rent Ordinance. Such provisions are void as against public policy.

Having just had this conversation with my Allstate agent I can say that you should talk to them about your coverage. They have those figures and also a formula that projects the costs of replacement. We figured the price per SF and then he noted that the policy will pay 140% of the value of the policy which then gave me the amount of coverage I needed. ... more
