Does California Require Wood Destroying Organism Inspections for a Sale?
The state of California does not have any provision that requires a WDO inspection for real estate transactions. Many financial institutions, however, require buyers to obtain a report of a WDO inspection from the seller before financing the purchase. Because of this, WDO inspections are key elements of real estate purchases, even though the law does not require them.
What Goes into a WDO Report?
These reports include information about:
- Any organisms that have impacted the structural integrity of a property’s wooden features. These organisms are not limited to termites and can include wood-boring beetles and wood-decaying fungi.
- The extent of the damage these organisms have caused.
- Recommendations for how to treat the problem and what repairs are necessary to restore the structural integrity of the property.
Who Can Complete a WDO Inspection?
According to the California Structural Pest Control Board, only licensed pest control companies and their registered employees can perform WDO inspections and deliver official reports. This ensures that inspections adhere to high standards.
It is important to note that not all pest control companies are licensed to perform WDO inspections. At Tri-Pacific Termite, we have the licensure to help property owners secure this inspection and report for real estate transactions.
