Do Florida real estate contracts require sellers to repair termite damage?

Posted By on July 5, 2016

According to the case law as of the date of this article, a provision in a real estate contract that requires a seller to deliver at closing a report from a licensed pest control company showing the property free of termites does not require a seller to repair termite damage.  In order for the seller to be obligated to make any such repairs, the parties would have to agree, in writing, for the seller to do so.

See: Langel v. Hastings, 537 So. 2d 1113 (Fla. 4th DCA 1989)
