    What is a Termite Inspection Report?   Termite  Inspection Report = Wood-Destroying Organisms Inspection Report   A few days ago, an agent who had a buyer who purchased one of my listed properties in 2009, called and said the buyer for XXXX property in 2009 complained that the seller for the home did not disclose the property had termites.  Now he just found out there are termites in the house while he is doing some repairs.   My response was that the termite inspection report is only good for 30 days before closing.                                The property sold one and half years ago, now you called and complained about the damage.                             The buyer agent said,” I hope he will not take legal action”  What do you think? ___________ (Activerain members your fee...
