Re: Floor Joist Damage
IMHO, repairing a floor joist is not a gigantic deal, however termite damage may be. Once repairs are started you may find even more damage, plus the cost of termite treatment. In most jurisdictions termite inspection is required before sale. Unless the house is being sold as-is and is priced accordingly, the seller should be responsible for making the repairs and the termite treatment.. Otherwise I would walk away.
