Is it required by law that there is to be a termite …

Typically in South Carolina this is a matter of standard practice rather than a legal matter. At our office, the policy is that If you are paying cash and are willing to sign a waiver acknowledging that your agent advised you to have an inspection performed but you chose not to, then that is fine. On the other hand, if you're getting a mortgage or other financing, the lender is most likely going to want to know that you have a clear CL-100 (aka termite letter). This doesn't just look for termites, but moisture problems & more!

According to US Inspect, there could be hidden damage. "One of the main characteristics of termites and termite colonies is their tendency to avoid open air and bright lights, meaning they will stay underground or within wood products. It is almost impossible for an inspector to visually identify or locate an active termite infestation just by looking at the finished surface of a wall or the accompanying trim."

To protect your investment, always get a termite inspection!
