The seller agreed to do all section 1 termite work which was estimated to be $2895. When we received the completed termite work report, we saw that the work cost $2695. The reason for the price difference being that the seller's agent decided to do what the termite company calls a "substandard recommendation" and spot treat the house rather than tent. Our concern is that in the attic, the termite company states that a limited inspection was performed due to visual and physical blockage due to insulation and low pitch. So, if the house was spot treated, how can we be sure all the drywood termites found in the attic have been taken care of if a limited inspection was performed? If they can't see it, they can't treat it.
If the house had been tented (as we expected it would), all seen and unseen termite problems would have been taken care off. How concerned should we be about this? We are upset that the seller's agent changed the agreed upon work without consulting us.
