Asked by Thomasina, Springfield, MA • Sun Aug 30, 2009
I have found my dream home. After putting in an offer I found out from a friend of a friend that the house has/had over $30,000 worth of termite damage. None of this was disclosed to myself or my realtor. When I mentioned this to my realtor, she asked the buyer's realtor, who then said that the problem had been resolved because the home was gutted and rebuilt, and that the damage was present previous to the current buyers occupying the home. I plan on having my own inspection anyways. Should I still buy the home? Should I be concerned that the previous termite damage was not disclosed to me, even though the problem has supposedly been resolved? Are there any extra measures that I should take to prevent the home from further damage or further termite infestation?
