While most homeowners worry about flood or fires, the more likely threat to your livelihood is termites. Birmingham TV news station ABC 33/40 recently highlighted the steps homeowners can take to protect their home from termite infestation.
The segment included Attorney Tom Campbell who has experience trying hundreds of termite lawsuits. Campbell advised that you should pay close attention to your policy.
“If you’re buying a new house look at the text box at top. It should say re-treatment and repair,” advises Campbell.
He adds that it should say full comprehensive treatment instead of defined treatment.
Campbell says “if the termiticides are applied and re-applied as needed then you shouldn’t have to worry, but you must be sure you are protected just in case.”
