What Is A WDO Inspection?
A WDO, or termite, real estate inspection is a Wood Destroying Organism Inspection. This inspection is also known by other names, such as a Real-estate inspection, clear-to-close inspection, or just a termite inspection. A WDO inspection is typically required by a financial institution when a potential home buyer looks to take out a mortgage on a home they may buy. A current homeowner may want to refinance their home to get a better interest rate. I have also seen many times that existing homeowners have a WDO inspection to see what their home may have in the way of Wood Destroying Organisms. The inspection ensures that the house does not contain abundant Wood Destroying Organisms or damage. It allows them to require treatments or the opportunity to have the repairs done before they invest in the property to be mortgaged. For the sake of the home's potential purchaser, The WDO inspection serves as a tool to see what extent to Wood Destroying Organisms may be "VISIBLY" seen by the licensed inspector.
