Default Termites...again

termites-again-sam_1013.jpg

Found more termites today.

Many of you sell the termite inspection as a separate inspection, but I include it in my price so that I don't have to sell two separate services. The difference is 5 minutes on a separate report.

If I get a client for a VA loan, then I bill the seller for $50 and discount my fee to the buyer $50.

Did I refer, what?

I am licensed to inspect for WDI. The house did not have any signs of past treatment. Therefore, I recommend treatment.

I quote a fee & tell them the termite is included at no additional fee.
No subcontracting, etc, blah blah.
My own license & termite company.
Termites have been very very good to me over the years.

ps... you mention there was no evidence of previous treatment so you recommend one. What if it was treated 2 years ago & there is no warranty anymore?
I always recommend treatment "if not under a current warranty". I tell my client no company will warrant another's work that is not under warranty, the seller needs to produce the death certificate & prove it is current AKA presumptive evidence of infestation.
