What is a Termite Certificate?
When real property is sold in Texas A Wood Destroying Insect Infestation Report needs to be issued. Normally your Real Estate Agent recommends having the home inspection as well as a Termite certificate done for the potential buyer. Some mortgage and title companies will require this report at the closing. This report is sometimes refered to as a W.D.I. report. A Wood Infestation report shows whether the house has or has had an infestation of wood destroying insects such as Subterranean Termites, Drywood Termites, Dampwood Termites, Formosan Termites.termites, powder post beetles, wood boring beetles or Carpenter Ants and wood decaying fungus. It also covers conditions conducive to an infestation of these organisms. Some of these conditions are: wood to ground contact, inadequate ventilation, crawl space drainage problems, faulty grades, etc. A Wood Infestation Report also goes into detail about damage to the substructure caused by water leaks or wood infesting organisms. Often times if a house has an active infestation of wood destroying organisms, damage caused by these organisms or conditions conducive to the organisms, corrective measures must be taken.
