Not sure if this belongs here but I’ll ask anyway haha.
What do people do to safeguard their properties from pests like termites? I am always worried when buying properties about the possibility of termites, or that I will find out that one of my own properties has a termite problem.
If you have problems pre-purchase, then that reflects more on how much you trust the person that inspected the property initially. You could pay for your own inspection from someone you trust to make sure before purchasing, and maintain inspections after buying it when you feel a bit worried.
If you get a professional inspection and they find something that will create more problems if left alone, they would let you know and work with you to fix the problem and prevent it from happening again.
