I would most certainly have a termite report performed even on a condo. I do not perform termite inspections (they are licensed inspections in Texas) but I advise all of my clients to have a Wood Destroying Insect (WDI) inspection, even if the home is new.
If you choose to have one performed I would recommend though that you contract with the WDI Inspector to also inspect surrounding, visible, common areas to make sure WDI is not present elsewhere. It does not take long for WDI to spread and cause damage. If CA WDI Inspectors will not do this then I would speak with the management company/Condo Association Board to find out when they last had one performed of common areas, and potentially individual units. Also ask them if they regularly inspect and/or treat for WDI as a preventative measure. While you are asking them this you may also wish to ask how they handle their normal "Other" pest management issues.
