HUD Termite Inspection Reporting and Requirements
New construction is defined as proposed property construction, properties currently under construction, and existing properties less than 1-year-old.
For New Construction, HUD’s Single Family Housing Policy Handbook (SF Handbook; HUD Handbook 4000.1), effective October 15, 2019, mandates the usage and submission of the following forms in all areas of the country.
Click here to review HUD’s Termite Treatment Exception Area which provides a detailed list of exempted states and counties. States that are not listed and have historically required termite inspection reports still require termite inspection reports for all new construction.
Inspecting existing properties is possibly more important than new construction. Over time, wood-destroying insects can cause serious structural damage to a property and may go undetected for a long time.
HUD’s Single Family Housing Policy Handbook (SF Handbook; HUD Handbook 4000.1), effective October 15, 2019, requires wood-destroying insect inspections, with proper documentation of existing properties if any of the following factors apply:
Customary to the Area
Local HUD offices can assist in guiding what constitutes “customary to the area.” Generally, if your locality is not listed in HUD’s Termite Treatment Exception Area, then termite inspection reports will be considered customary to the area and therefore required.
Mandated by the state or local jurisdiction
Some states or municipalities mandate that wood-destroying insect inspections be performed.
Evidence of Active Infestation
Appraisers are required to observe all areas of the house and other structures/areas within the property boundaries. If any active infestation is identified, NPMA-33 must be submitted.
Conventional lending companies take guidance from HUD. In recent years more and more lenders are taking a more cautious approach toward lending resulting in more inspections and reporting requirements.
If any of the above four factors apply, HUD mandates the usage and submission of the NPMA-33 form.
In the states listed below, the state inspection form should be used. In some cases, HUD may still require the NPMA-33 for HUD-insured loans.
The NPMA (National Pest Management Association) forms must be used by wood-destroying insect inspectors to report the results of WDI inspections for any HUD/VA guaranteed Property transactions.
Crownmax has all of the NPMA forms that the VA or HUD may require as attachments to the NPMA-33 Form, including:
(Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Report)
The NPMA-33 WDI Inspection Form also called the NPMA-33 Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Report, is only used to report activity or damage from wood-destroying insects that, for this report, include termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and reinfesting wood boring beetles.
HUD regulations at 24 CFR 200.926d(b)(3) require that the sites for HUD-insured structures must be free of termite hazards. The form HUD-NPMA-99-A requires the builder to certify that an authorized pest control company performed all required treatment for termites with the builder’s guarantee of the treated area against infestation for one year. The form HUD-NPMA-99-B requires that a licensed pest control company provides the builder with a record of specific treatment information for the prevention of termites. When applicable, Form HUD-NPMA-99-B must accompany Form HUD-NPMA-99-A.
HUD-NPMA-99-A: Current Document Name

The builder must complete the HUD-NPMA-99-A form and specifies whether the work was done by the pest control company or the builder (in the rare case of using extensive pressure-treated lumber as termite prevention). The form delineates the builder’s responsibilities, and the builder must guarantee that any work done complies with the building code.
HUD-NPMA-99-B: Current Document Name
(New Construction Subterranean Termite Service Record)
NPMA-99B: Obsolete Document Name
