I had to have my house “tented” when I sold it. What a scam!
I had no damage whatever, but the scam artist self-appointed termite inspector claimed my woodpile, not next to the house even, might contain termites, although he didn’t even test it, and that they might fly to the house any time, so he “couldn’t” give me a clean inspection report. And the bank refused to allow a second opinion, and his report would stay on file even if we found a new lender. Talk about a license to steal!
So they put a circus tent over the whole house, fill it with some gas, which supposedly leaves no residue, and you are all set for the next two days! Two days! He said, since there is no residue, and he didn’t even treat the wood pile, that they might land while we were still in escrow. Fortunately, the deal finished and we had shelled out thousands for absolutely nothing.
