Asked by Andy, Roswell, GA • Wed Dec 19, 2007
Our offer was accepted on a house and we close in late Jan. One special stipulation was that seller is to provide a termite closing letter. I'm not sure what that entails, though, and want to make sure we don't have problems. The house is 25 years old, frame. No termite bond currently, and disclosed as no treatements in the pat 5 years. Our home inspection found some evidence of minor treatment from insects in the garage a long time ago, and an area in the attic where the paper backing of the gypsum board was not present, possibly suggesting previous termite damage.
Does the termite letter require the home owner to have a qualified termite inspection performed/? Is this sufficient to believe that there are currently no termite problems, or unresolved damage from previous termite issues?
