Why are Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Reports Necessary?

Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Reports, or WDIIRs, are a vital piece of documentation to have about a home, particularly if you are looking to buy one. These reports provide detailed information about current and past termite infestations, along with potential trouble spots for future infestations.

What are WDIIRs? 

WDO1WDIIRs are two-page documents that give prospective homebuyers information about the house they’re interested in, and whether or not the structure has sustained any damage from wood destroying insects. The first page of the report includes basic information about the property, such as the address, date of the inspection, and which areas of the home were inspected. The second page includes greater detail, describing areas of current and previous damage and pinpointing trouble spots where termites and other insects could get in.

When do you need a WDIIR?

If you are buying a home or other building, you need a WDIIR. While state law does not require one, most lending companies in the central Arizona area do require a WDIIR to be completed by a licensed pest exterminator in Phoenix. A WDIIR will also help you make a more informed decision about whether or not to purchase the property.

Why WDIIRs are necessary

Aside from requirements by lenders, WDIIRs are necessary for your own peace of mind. Knowing that the home you want to buy is free of wood destroying insects will put your mind at ease about your purchase. It will also give you advance warning of areas of concern, such as cracks in the foundation or leaking pipes that may attract the pests. With this knowledge, you can decide whether or not to take action in terms of treatment, or simply walk away from the property.

Before you buy a house, make sure you get a WDIIR whether your lending company requires it or not. This is a vital piece of information to have about the property you are purchasing to meet possible requirements AND to give you peace of mind.
