Wood destroying termites and pests have probably impacted nearly every house ever built at one time of another. Most every house is going to have some level of wood boring or termite damage during its lifetime.
When you apply for a VA loan in CT, you will have to have a licensed VA pest inspection performed on the property as part of your preparation to close on the house. As the VA borrower, you cannot pay the pest control inspection, the seller is required to pay. The pest control inspection report is provided for you on site using the required form.
If treatment is required because termites or pests were found during the pest control inspection, someone has to pay for the work to be done in order for the property to meet VA eligibility and clear for closing. Many times the seller will pay for the work that needs to be done but not always. Think about this when you are writing up the offer to purchase your new home or property.
You may want to have your Realtor add a clause requiring the seller to pay for the inspection and for any termite control or pest control and repairs that may be needed.
If the seller does not want to pay, you as the VA borrower can pay for the pest control or treatment and repair work. Give us a call or email us if you have any more questions about VA Pest Control Inspections in CT.
