ANSWER: Not if the termite inspector put you on notice your house needed further inspection.
Judge Milian of the People's Court (guilty pleasure here!) breaks it down for this home buyer who is suing his termite inspector. Basically, the inspector warned the home buyer that the house needed more evaluation and that he could not give it a pest clearance. The buyer at least was smart enough to get the home inspected, but what is the good of doing an inspection if you don't follow their advice?!
It's like if you go see a doctor & he tells you to get further tests done because you might have diabetes. You do no tests, and soon after you get diagnosed with diabetes. You ain't gonna sue the doc?! Nuh-uhhhh!
IMPORTANT SIDE NOTE: I like the plaintiff's lavender tie. But, umm, his hair. I have no words.
