Question by d t: My home of almost 2 years has slowly revealed a lot of termite damage that was not disclosed before sale?
“Mandatory seller property condition disclosure is required by law in 45 states and the District of Columbia. The states that do not require disclosure are Alabama, Kansas, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming.” Does this still hold true? Do I have any legal rights? The home was inspected by a licensed home inspector who revealed some termite damage that had been repaired. His words “Adequately repaired.” Then cut to 11 months after the home has been in our name we find water has found its way into our basement and some of the drywall has to come off for repairs and Wow! I can’t believe this house is still standing! I’m not a framer but I think the corner that the “bugs” were chewing on looks to me like it is load bearing! There are no live termites in sight and the same exterminator company that mitigated the “bugs” still spray for us. This is not a pleasant way to start out our lives in our first home. Thank you much for any input!

You knew of termite damage prior to buying it and the time elapsed is enough for a lot of further damage to happen.
