Why is a Pest Inspection on form NPMA-33 required in CT?

The NPMA-33 is required for CT pest inspections because it is authorized for the purposes of securing mortgages for FHA, VA, HUD, and Conventional loans and is authorized in all states. Very few states, require a specific state inspection form be used which is why the NPMA-33 is used for most real estate transactions purposes nationwide. The inspection itself is usually required because one of the parties (i.e.  mortgage company, underwriter,  buyer, seller, federal or state municipalities etc.) requests that it be performed as a transaction contingency. WDI can infest a structure at any time in Connecticut including following treatment. Wood boring insects can survive in a structure following treatment and reinfestation can occur at any time which is why a pest inspection can become imperative. The NPMA-33 form  includes visual inspection of the readily accessible areas of your home or property for WDI (Wood Destroying Insect)  infestation.  They are looking for evidence from: 1) Termites 2) Carpenter ants 3) Carpenter bees 4) Wood boring beetles  The NPMA-33 limits visible WDI evidence to the following eight forms: 1) Live insects 2) Dead insects 3) Insect parts 4) Frass 5) Shelter tubes 6) Exit holes 7) Staining 8) Visible damage caused by WDI (The report does include a structural assessment) Please don’t be lead to believe that the CT  inspection company can enforce any kind of treatment.  If the parties involved in the transaction elect to have treatment that is something that should be negotiated among them.  The inspecting company has no control over what must take place once damage or live infestations are found.  Most lenders however, will require treatment...

Connecticut FHA Rules for Pest Inspections

If you have ever bought or sold Connecticut real estate with FHA financing you know that FHA loans sometimes work differently than conventional loans. FHA does not automatically require inspections be made on all Connecticut mortgage loans, however several situations do require termite inspections.  These include: Evidence of active termite infestation In some cases an inspection is mandated by CT state or local municipalities If the lender or mortgage underwriter is requiring it If an appraiser sees signs of an active infestation they must report it on.  This can act as a catelyst for the mortgage lender to require a certified pest inspection to verify the damage.  Prior damage and treatment from wood boring insects is also sometimes reported by the appraiser if it is readily apparent. If a pest inspection is called for in a standard real estate contract in your area of Connecticut, or wherethere is a high likelihood of termite infestation, then an inspection is required.    Ultimately mortgage underwriters have the final say in whether or not a pest inspection will be required for the specific property you are purchasing.
