You may ask yourself, “What is a termite letter? I’m selling my house! Do I need one?” Hopefully, this post will answer some questions you may have about a termite letter, sometimes called a termite warranty or a termite bond.
When you are getting your home ready to sell, there are so many things to get ready and prepare for. Maybe its repainting the walls/fixing that leaky faucet or taking a Magic Eraser to every surface in your house! Whatever may be on your “To Do” list you don’t want to forget to get a termite letter. So, what is it?
A termite letter is an Official Wood Infestation Report filled out by a licensed Georgia technician. Is starts with a thorough inspection of your home. The technicians are looking for 5 wood destroying organisms.
- Subterranean termites
- Drywood termites
- Powder Post Beetles or PPB
- Wood Boring Beetles
- Fungus/Wood decay
The termite letter is a report stating that your home is free and clear of these 5 organisms. With the letter, we promise that your home will be clear of these 5 organisms for 90 days. If your house, by any chance, does get termites within those 90 days, we will come out and treat the house for free!
