I received a quote for a termite contract yesterday. Does this seem expensive?

Question by Chris: I received a quote for a termite contract yesterday. Does this seem expensive?
I know that a lot of variables go into a termite contract, but I undoubtedly need one, as I live in the Charlotte area. My crawlspace is about 1,400 square feet and my garage slab is about 400 square feet. But I received a quote from Orkin yesterday for $ 1,722 (a 20% discount) for a 10 year contract. If that isn’t steep enough, they want $ 110 every 3 months to inspect the area. This sounds insanely expensive. The local company, using the same technology, is offering $ 1,400 max plus $ 110 a year. I’ve heard complaints about Orkin with warranties, etc. Can anyone shed some advice? Thanks!

I have about the same size house in middle ga and i paid $ 1000 to start and about $ 100 a year for inspections. If your getting inspected every 3 months you must be getting those termite thingys (lol) in your yard. I dont have those. If your not then why would they inspect every 3 months.

Q&A: Is a contract valid if the company is not registered under the local law?

Question by Toble toble: Is a contract valid if the company is not registered under the local law?
OK, it’s hard to formulate this in a single sentence, so here is the issue:

I was hesitating to deal with a company which it seems has no registered business in the USA, nor the people associated with the company are Americans. However, they mention in their agreement that “The state of New York” and its law will be taken into account during abirtration.

Isn’t this illegal?

Ps: they say the contract is a “just a very basic example”…so hopefully it’s not some scam.

I don’t know about whether the company is a scam or not, but that would not make the contract illegal or even invalid. A contract can be formed between anyone (except minors or those who do not have the mental capacity to contract) and it would still be enforceable. As long as there was a valid offer, acceptance, and is supported by consideration, then it is a valid contract. The fact that they have an “New York arbitration clause” also does not invalidate the contract. That just merely states the jurisdiction where they want arbitration to be. Did you agree to the contract already? If you don’t want to have to travel to New York to arbitrate it if something goes wrong, you better reject their offer and send a counter offer. Or just reject it all together. If you have already accepted, then you better perform, or you will be found in breach. That’s assuming there are no other terms that are illegal or unconscionable, or you have some other defense to not complete performance.
