ARE TERMITE INSPECTIONS REQUIRED?
There are lenders that require a termite inspection before they will approve a loan on residential properties. HDPI would usually recommend termite inspections as a preventative homeowner strategy. Termites are responsible for more structural damage to houses than hurricanes, floods and tornados put together. Termites are usually hidden or concealed. Frequently, homeowners do not realize there are termites until they've compromised the structure and caused thousands of dollars of damage.
Sellers may not be aware of the presence of termites, thus, it would not be included on the Seller's Disclosure. Having a professional inspection to assess that possibility is a prudent choice. In order to perform a termite inspection in Kansas or Missouri, the inspector must possess credentials from the state. The findings of the termite inspection are documented in a separate written report.
