termites at home!!!!! advice needed

chinamoonAugust 5, 2010

Hey guys,

I'm in the process of buying a home

This house was built around 1990 well, the termite inspector found signs of termites in the garage area.

Is this really bad?

should i still get this house?

I'm really concern about this issue, everything else is fine with the house.

Please send any advice.

Thanks in advance!!!

Well, in these parts that's not unusual. It could involve major damage or it could be just a little bit. Is it old damge or are the termites active? Are they drywood termites or subterranean? Where are you located?

We would ask that the house/garage be treated (tenting is the common treatment here for drywood termites) and any termite damage be repaired.

I would do as Monablair suggested. I would not rule out a property for minor damage, but I would not buy the property unless the current owner is willing to do the treatment and repair.

Try looking at the FAQ on this site: www.cardillolaw.com under the Services tab and in the Sellers of Termite Damaged Property. This guy is a termite lawyer and you can also email him.
