Escrow & Real Estate Termite Inspections in Los Angeles, CA

Helping Customers in Rosemead & Surrounding California Counties Buy & Sell Termite-Free Properties

A property doesn’t have to have human inhabitants to play host to termites. Residential and commercial properties that are involved in real estate transactions can be especially vulnerable to infestations as they are often left alone for extended periods of time. 

Why Real Estate Termite Inspections Are Important

A termite inspection is an essential part of any real estate or escrow transaction in Los Angeles, California. This is because termites can cause extensive damage to wood-based materials, and this type of damage, if not inspected and treated early on, can result in the need for major repairs that can be costly and damaging down the line. Termite-infested homes tend to have a lowered market value and are typically more difficult to sell than termite-free homes. That's why it is always important to invest in termite inspection services when transacting real estate or escrow in Los Angeles California. It can save homeowners future costs and provide peace of mind when selling or buying a home.

If you’re concerned that a property that you’re buying, selling, or overseeing the sale of may be infested with termites, Morales Exterminating Co. can help you conduct a thorough inspection, prevent future infestations, and deal with any termites that may have moved into your property without your permission. Whatever stage of the real estate process you’re in, whether you’re preparing to sell or in escrow, we can help you certify that the property involved is termite-free.

If you’re buying or selling a property in Los Angeles or a surrounding county, make sure termites aren’t included in the transaction.

Are Termite Inspections Required as Part of the Escrow Process?

The state of California requires a termite report as part of the escrow process when a property is refinanced or sold. Prospective buyers need to know that their new home or business is free of costly termite damage and financial institutions need to assess significant damage risk factors that may complicate the refinancing process until the problem is addressed. Thus, an inspection from a certified termite control expert is required to move the sale or refinancing process forward.

Our state-licensed technicians offer unbiased, escrow-specific, FHA/VA certified termite inspections with rush service options available. We’ll provide you with thorough reports that take note of all termite damage and outline potential problem areas within the structure. We can also provide you with quick, efficient, and customized treatment options and recommendations so that you can handle any problems revealed during the course of the inspection and get on with closing your deal.

If you have a property in escrow in Los Angeles or any of the surrounding areas, Morales Exterminating Co. can get it inspected for termites as required by California law.

When a Property in Escrow Needs to Be Inspected for Termites, Who Pays?

As a property is still the responsibility of the original owner until escrow closes, it is the seller who needs to pay for any inspections or treatments required. This includes the inspection mandated by the state of California. If you’re a buyer with concerns about a potential pest problem in a property you’re interested in, or if you’re a seller who wants their property certified as termite-free, your realtor can help you arrange for an inspection and make sure that it’s accepted by the proper authorities and paid for properly.

Should You Inspect for Termites Before You Put Your Property On the Market?

If you’re seriously considering putting your property on the market, getting it inspected for termites now can save you a lot of time and effort later in the process. However, you will need to make sure that the inspection is conducted properly, by inspectors who are certified to perform the kind of inspection that the state requires for real estate transactions. You’ll also need to make sure that the inspector provides you with a detailed report and assessment that can be provided to a realtor when requested. Choosing the right inspector is an essential part of this process – a good termite inspector will walk you through the process and make sure you have everything you need to prove that your property is termite-free when the time comes to put it on the market.

The process of buying or selling a property is stressful enough - Morales Exterminating Co. makes it easy to check a termite inspection off your list. Call our Rosemead office at (626) 243-7170 or reach out to us online today to get started with a free estimate!
