Who Is Responsible for the Termite Damage in My Home?

Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make. Saving for a house, going through the process of applying for a mortgage, and finally signing the closing documents all require lots of time and patience. If you have recently purchased a home in Maryland and found it infested by termites, Whitney, LLP can help you find out who is responsible for the termite damage at your home. We have experience helping homeowners getting the repair costs and compensation you deserve in this situation.

Maryland Laws Protect Individuals Who Unknowingly Purchase Homes Infested with Termites

Home sellers and others who knowingly make false statements or misrepresent the condition of a home can be held liable for failure to disclose information about the property. Termite inspectors who do a poor job of checking for termites during an inspection can be held responsible for being incompetent. A termite damage contractor who fails to treat and repair an infested home correctly can also be liable for the termite issues you find in the home you bought. Termites can weaken and eventually destroy wood structures, making a home unsafe and causing a homeowner to spend tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars for termite damage repair.

If you purchased a home in Maryland and have found evidence of a termite infestation or termite damage, you should get legal help right away. At Whitney, LLP, our termite damage lawyers, will fight for you to get the money you need for termite damage repair. We offer free consultations. In 2019, our firm recovered a termite damage verdict for $1,000,068 against a fraudulent and negligent termite inspection company.

Whitney, LLP has filed many lawsuits involving termite damage, including against people who have acted dishonestly, including house flippers, negligent pest control companies, and real estate agents, to recover costs for termite damage treatment and repairs and to get compensation for emotional distress. We have helped homeowners in your situation get compensated for termite issues. Investigative reporter Barry Simms featured one of our cases on WBAL. You can see from his report on our clients how important it is to work with a termite attorney to ensure that you get treated fairly.

Maryland Termite Lawyer for Damage Claims

You should not have to suffer or worry because of the negligence of people who should know better when it comes to being honest about termite damage or infestation. Home sellers, real estate agents, and termite inspectors are required by law to disclose termite damage and issues to potential homebuyers. You should also expect competence and professionalism from a real estate agents, termite damage contractor or termite extermination company.

You may wish to sell your property at some point, but if a termite infestation persists, it will be hard to sell it. By law, you will have to disclose the problem. As a result, you may not be able to sell your home, or you will get less money from the sale. If you have found termite damage at your home in Maryland, we want to help you. The termite attorneys at Whitney, LLP will work diligently to find out who is at fault, and we will fight aggressively to pursue compensation that could help you resolve the termite issue plaguing your home. We offer free consultations. If you have discovered termite damage at your home in Maryland, contact Whitney, LLP at (410) 583-8000.
