The most common home inspection ordered by a home buyer is called a general home inspection. Typically the general home inspection will include the inspector seeking out any pest and dry rot issues, which includes termites. Be sure you verify this with your home inspector.
Some inspectors will offer a "limited scope inspection" for a decreased cost to inspect for only pest and dry rot issues. Besides the general home, pest and dry rot inspections, there are many other inspections to consider depending on the home’s location, specifications and your level of concern.
