WDI/WDO inspections are required to buy, sell, or refinance a property. Sometimes they’re called a “clearance letter” or a “termite letter”. VA, FHA, HUD and most banks require these reports because termites and wood-destroying organisms can impact the structural integrity of a home, reduce the property value of the residence, and cost homeowners significant amounts of money in repairs. With such a large investment at stake, it’s natural that homeowners want to use a reputable, reliable pest inspector.
