I bought a house 10 months ago and now there are termites. Prior to buying the home, a pest inspection was done and there were some drywood termites discovered on the deck and the deck was replaced. There were also some area conditions deemed likely to lead to infestation or infection (water stains and fungus), but where no visible evidence of termites found.

The inspector informed me that the house was in buying condition in regards to termites, however now I have a major termite problem on my hands.

Can termites infest this quickly after inspection?? Am I protected by any California Real Estate laws?

Thanks,
