“A CL100 report details visible infestation and damage caused by insects, usually termites or beetles, and decay in accessible areas of a structure. These reports are usually required by the mortgage lender or the buyer in a real estate transaction.” 

If you’re purchasing a home or business property, getting a CL-100 form, also referred to as a South Carolina Wood Infestation Report, is essential to making an informed decision. Many mortgage lenders require a cl 100 to help protect their investment. This is a report filled out by a pest control company to ensure that the property being purchased has been inspected by a certified professional for visible evidence of any wood-destroying organisms, or signs that a subterranean termite treatment has been done in the past. If damage is found, the inspector will offer an evaluation for the purchaser to consider. This form is not a guarantee that a structure is free of any wood-destroying organisms. Nor does it provide financial protection for the purchaser. It is simply a vital step in the process of evaluating the condition of the structure being purchased.

There are many wood-destroying organisms covered on the CL-100 form. This form covers subterranean termites, drywood termites, old house borers, powder post beetles, and any other insects classified as a wood destroyer. It is also used to document active or non-active wood-destroying fungi and the wood moisture content found. But, most importantly, it is an evaluation form that will outline any wood damage or moisture threat in the structure being purchased.

Don’t let someone else’s problem become yours. Make sure your property has been properly inspected for wood-destroying organisms by having a CL-100 report.

“What is the cost of CL-100 or Termite Letter?” 

On a VA Loan purchase, the seller is required to pay for the termite inspection. The buyer isn’t allowed to cover the cost for this and if the buyer has paid for it, then they must be reimbursed at closing.

In the state of South Carolina, a CL-100 can also be referred to as a South Carolina Wood Infestation Report. At First Choice Pest Control, we charge a one-time fee to provide this report. We also offer special pricing for real estate agents.

We’ve been using this company for quarterly maintenance for years. Always happy with their service and knowledge. We had a bout of spiders and small roaches (we live way out in the country) after weeks of rain and had them come out to treat and haven’t had any issue since. We use them for yard treatment and are pleased! Highly recommend!
