Pest Inspections

Pest inspections are handled in the same way as home inspections.  They are usually conducted before closing.  It is the responsibility of the buyer to hire and pay for the professional pest inspection.  The price of the pest inspection will vary depending on the size of your new home.  The purpose of a pest inspection is to check the foundation, siding, framing for termites.  The inspection will also reveal if any other critters are staking claim on your new home.

If concerns arise during the pest inspection, it does not mean the seller is required to pay for the treatment.  The terms are negotiable by both parties.  Again, your REALTOR® can help you proceed.
