Subterranean Termite Soil Treatment Builder’s Guarantee
This form is completed by the builder.
This form is submitted for proposed (new) construction cases when soil treatment for prevention of subterranean termite infestation is specified by the builder or required by the lender,
the architect, FHA or VA.
This form is to be completed by the builder. This guarantee is issued by the builder to the buyer. This guarantee is not to be considered as a waiver of, or in place of, any legal rights or
remedies that the buyer may have against the builder.
FHA/VA Case No.: ___________________________________________
Location of Structure(s) (Street Address, or Legal Description, City, State and Zip):
Buyer’s Name:
The undersigned builder hereby certifies that a State licensed or otherwise authorized pest control company (where required by State law) was contracted to treat the property at the
location referenced above for subterranean termites. The builder further certifies that the contract with the pest control company required the treatment materials and methods used to
be in conformance with all applicable State and Federal requirements. All work required by the contract has been completed. Where not prohibited by applicable State requirements, the
buyer, for an additional fee payable to the pest control company, may extend the protection against subterranean termites. Contact the pest control company listed on the attachment for
further information.
The builder hereby guarantees that, if subterranean termite infestation should occur within one year from the date of closing, the builder will ensure that a licensed or otherwise State
authorized pest control company (where required by State law) or other qualified licensed pest control company will further treat as necessary in the infested area to control infestations
in the structure. This further treatment will be without cost to the buyer. If permitted by State law, the buyer may contract directly, at the buyer’s expense, with a pest control company to
inspect the property on a periodic basis and/or use EPA registered products to control the infestation. The builder will not be responsible for guaranteeing such additional treatment. The
builder further agrees to repair all damage by subterranean termites within the one-year builder’s warranty period. This guarantee does not apply to additions or alterations that are
made by the buyer, which affects the original structure or treatment. Examples include, but are not limited to, landscape and mulch alterations, which disturb the treated area and create
new subterranean termite hazards, or interfere with the control measures.
If within the guarantee period the builder questions the validity of a claim by the buyer, the claim will be investigated by an unbiased expert mutually agreeable to the buyer and builder.
The report of the expert will be accepted as the basis for disposition of the case. The non-prevailing party will pay the cost of any inspections made to investigate the claim. For further
information, contact your State structural pest control regulatory agency.

regarding Integrated Pest Management for Prevention of Wood Destroying Insects. Information regarding prevention of wood destroying
insect infestation is helpful to any property owner interested in protecting the structure from infestation. Any structure can be attacked by wood destroying insects. Periodic mainte-
nance should include measures to minimize possibilities of infestation in and around a structure. Factors which may lead to infestation from wood destroying insects include foam
insulation at foundation, earth-wood contact, faulty grade, firewood against structure, insufficient ventilation, moisture. wood debris in crawl space, wood mulch, tree branches touching
structures, landscape timbers, and wood rot. Should these or other such conditions exist, corrective measure should be taken by the owner in order to reduce the chances of
infestations by wood destroying insects, and the need for treatment.
An original and one copy of this guarantee are to be prepared by the builder and sent to the lender. The lender provides one copy to the buyer at closing and includes a copy in the VA
loan package or HUD insurance case binder. The builder sends one copy to the licensed pest control company which performed the treatment.
Attached is a copy of the state authorized pest control company’s New Construction Subterranean Termite Soil Treatment Record, HUD-NPCA-99-B.
