Real estate transactions require a termite inspection before the process of buying a house can be possible. It is very important for a real estate property to pass pest inspection because this will determine if loaning companies will lend the buyer money. Lending companies normally require an inspection done by a pest control expert before an agreement can be made.
Normally, checking for termites is done by a licensed technician. This expert will be able to accurately tell if a home is indeed infested with termites, or if the problem is caused by other organisms present in the house. The inspection covers the entire home from top to bottom and may take up to an hour to complete. However, the length of time may still vary upon the size of the house and the existence of any clutter or debris.
