I sold my home on August 30th 2016. I listed on my contract that my termite bond was good and transferable. I had an appointment with the pest control for October 3. 2016 and had no idea that it had expired in July after I closed and the new owners called the termite company to transfer the termite bond and they were told that the bond had expired but they would honor the October 3 appointment and the cost would be $500 to renew. The new owners want me to pay $250 for the bonds stated they would take me to small claims court if I don't pay since I lied on my contract ... more

If the infestation doesn't come back, I don't see that it matters (just me, just sayin').

Consider this: Doctors often treat bacterial infections with antibiotics without knowing the "specific" bacteria causing the infection. What leads them is location and symptoms. If you don't get well in the prescribed period of time, what do you do? You go back, so they can "try" again. If you get well, it doesn't matter what you "had," because it's gone!

I hope you remain infestation free!

You can ask the seller to pay for your closing cost in your offer. The seller would respond back with acceptance, counter you back, or possibly not accept paying your closing cost. It wouldn't hurt to ask the seller to pay for it. They can say yes or no to your offer. If that doesn't work another option you might want to consider is to increase the amount your offer amount to cover closing costs. ... more

You need to check with the county or city recorders office and or building inspector. If the additions were permitted than the permits will be on file. If not you have to assume the rooms were added without permits. Your lenders appraiser will not use that square footage as part of property value. Also you have no assurance the work was done properly and to code. Buyer beware.... ... more

Jimmy Payne answered:
With the recent political unrest and downturn of the economy many people prefer to rent to make sure the market is really coming back. Many are coming out of a short sale or foreclosure and are unable to obtain a mortgage at this time. You may also want to look at your ad and where you have it placed. If it is on craigslist, many people are looking for rentals, not homes to buy. In order to gain the maximum exposure to the largest audience of buyers, you need access to the MLS. As you have seen, there is a valuable benefit to using a real estate professional to sell your home. Good luck and hopefully you can find a qualified buyer soon but if you give up, interview a few agents and find a local expert with strong recommendations. ... more
