Wood Destroying Termite Inspector:

In the state of MS, a WDIR is required to close. If the buyer pays for this inspection, they will choose the termite inspector but many buyers ask the seller to pay for a termite inspection.  Typically a WDIR cost less than $50 and its a one time inspection completed 10 days before closing. Below is BJ Ledet with FDL Inspectiors, one of the most thorough and affordable WDIR inspectors on the Gulf Coast. They also offers competitive yearly termite contracts.

Septic Inspector/ repairman:

Not every home has a septic tank and not every loan requires a septic inspection. Typically only a VA or an FHA loan require a septic inspection.  You will not need to purchase a septic inspection unless it is negotiate in the purchase contract.

Home inspector:

Some sellers prefer to purchase a home inspection prior to putting their home on the market. This way they know what to fix prior to a buyer making an offer and then purchasing their own home inspection. Once a buyers offer has been accepted, they have 10 business days to order a home inspection and can back out if they are unhappy with the inspection. We have personally used Randy Westrick during the purchase of our home and commercial building. In our experience, every client who has ever hired Randy says he is the most thorough home inspector they have ever used.
