We were trying to buy a house and had Terminix come out and give a termite inspection in Feb, which was okay. They gave a clear inspection.  Three days before closing on the house, the supervisor decided he wanted to do another inspection and said there was termite damage.  The bank said that if he wrote on the inspection that there was minimal damage, everything would be alright.  The Terminix supervisor (Phil) said he couldn’t do this because he wasn’t a structural engineer. I understand that, but I don’t understand why they gave a clear inspection and then turned around three days before closing and said there was damage.  We had already called all of the utilities, took off work to move, and had to call back and reschedule.  Of course, we still had to pay him for this and a structural engineer, which was around $500.  The engineer said it was ridiculous for him to put us through that and this was about the third time he has had to deal with this because of the same man. I personally will never use Terminix or recommend them to anybody.

If you have been wronged by Terminix or another termite company, you don't have to fight alone.
