Pest Inspection


A pest inspection is not an inspection criteria currently required by the Standard of Practice (SOP) of The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). As a result, a pest inspection is not performed as a part of a standard home inspection.


Alabama is a Caveat Emptor ("let the buyer beware") state in terms of real estate transactions and there are no state legislated provisions which require an owner to disclose real-estate condition issues other than those issues which are federally mandated to be disclosed if known such as Lead Based Paint (LPB).


It is common for lenders to require a pest inspection prior to the close of a real estate transaction. In The State of Alabama regulations have been legislated in regards to professional services concerning pests. These regulations are enforced by The Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries.


We do not currently offer pest inspections or pest treatment services. In the event that pests or signs of pests are encountered during a standard home inspection they will be documented on the standard home inspection report. However, this type of inspection will not satisfy lender requirements associated with having a pest inspection performed and in no way is it intended to conflict with legislated regulations pertaining to pest inspections in The State of Alabama.
