I don't care much for the little turds, I ensure their evil colony dies with a proper dose of Fipronil, however when purchasing and they've been found by a previous B&P and the previous contract fell through for that reason, how much negotiation could one typically have in a warming market? I lost an offer on what was a great property that had termites found outside but not inside, but someone else must have made a better (or less conditional on an invasive building inspection) for $5k below median for that type of property in a given area. The agent was very difficult to coax him to admit termites were found but he only admitted after me asking 3 or 4 times while getting given the runaround about how well the structure was built and the wood being very termite resistant etc... Perhaps someone else didn't ask the hard questions to the agent. When a property is found to have termites by a B&P, is there a permanent record of that anywhere that I or a potential future purchaser could access? Say in 15 years when time comes to sell (and if the termite damage had been property repaired in the structure and/or outdoors), are there any reasons I could lose potential future value if a current B&P doesn't discover any white ant activity past or present?
