HOA buildings need to be inspected for termites once a year. A termite inspection is not like a Pest Control Inspection or Treatment. Termites can threaten the structural integrity of the entire building. For this reason, you should have a plan in place to have a licensed termite inspector access all the HOA’s common areas once a year.

Normally, the HOA will inform occupants and owners well in advance of the upcoming treatment, and send each owner not only information from the termite treatment company on preparing their home. Also, an acknowledgment form where the occupants can make sure they will vacate their home on the dates necessary.
