Last night Fox 19 in Cincinnati reported on a tragic situation involving the home of one of our clients. Mary Ellen Boutet of Reading Ohio paid to have her home treated to prevent termites and continued to pay for annual treatments and inspections. After she passed away and her daughter undertook to sell the house it became clear that those treatments were completely ineffective and that Ms. Boutet’s home was so infested with termites that her daughter has been unable to close a sale on the property.
It turns out that some of the chemicals that Terminix, the pest control company Ms. Boutet hired, were ineffective when they were applied and that the company concealed that fact from our client and their other customers for years
We have teamed up with the Campbell Law Firm from Alabama to bring suit in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court. A copy of our complaint is here:Yelkin T 2014 09 16 Complaint.
