The NPMA-33 Wood Destroying Insect (WDI) Inspection report is a copyrighted document that cannot be reproduced or distributed, in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA).

4) Who is responsible for getting the buyer and seller to sign the new NPMA-33 form?

The Realtor or closing firm is responsible for getting the buyer and seller to sign the new NPMA-33 form. It is not the inspector’s responsibility to obtain these signatures.

5) What is the difference between a free Termite inspection report and an NPMA-33 WDI Inspection report?

A free termite inspection report usually covers a check for termites and conditions that may be conducive to future termite infestations. The format and the content of a free Termite inspection report can vary from company to company.

On the other hand, a Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Report (Form NPMA-33) is a report that reports on the current conditions of a structure, at the time of inspection, in regards to particular pests.  It is the official form recognized and copyrighted by NPMA. Most banks and financial organizations require the completion of this report when buying or refinancing a home loan.

The WDI report is generally accepted by the underwriters for 30 days from the date of the inspection.  After this time, they will usually require a re-inspection.

6) What type of companies should use an NPMA-33 form?

The following three types of companies or stakeholders MUST use the NPMA-33:

  • Pest control companies that offer termite treatments and report the results of WDI inspections for a property transaction. 
  • Real Estate firms for transactions involving HUD/VA loans.
  • Traditional mortgage lenders

7) Is a termite letter the same thing as a Wood Destroying Insects (WDI) Inspection form?

Yes. It is the same. It’s just called different names by different people.
