Disclosure of Pest Inspection Report

Question: I am a listing agent. The sellers obtained a pest inspection report approximately one year ago. The property is currently in escrow. The buyers obtained their own pest inspection report. Does the seller have to disclose the prior pest inspection report?

Answer: Yes. The pest inspection report is material and must be disclosed by the sellers even though the buyer obtained their own more recent pest inspection report.

Question: Is the sellers’ pest inspection report invalid, since it has expired?

Answer: The sellers’ prior pest inspection report still has to be disclosed. Pest inspection reports do not “expire.” The Pest Operator Control Board indicates that if a pest inspection is more than three months old, the property must be reinspected, but does not provide that inspection reports “expire.”
