At what point must a Florida realtor reveal to a potential Buyer that the property has had termite problems in the past? The problem was revealed to the Buyer only after the termite inspector reported it. Although no live termites were found, the Buyer was informed of damage that had been caused by termites 7 years ago. The Buyer knew there was a problem with "wood rot", but did not know that this damage was caused by termites until after the termite inspection. If the realtor knew about the termite problem when the house was first shown to the Buyer, was the realtor legally required to inform the Buyer, even if it was not in the Seller's best interest?

The agent should have disclosed the info from the beginning and said disclosure would have indeed been in the Seller's interest.
