What kind of spider?

I am a home inspector in Birmingham Alabama and I found this spider just outside the corner of a garage door of a brand new house. I want to be able to tell the buyers if they need to worry or not so I would greatly appreciate it if you would identify, please!

Fiddle leaf fig cold exposure maybe?

Our weather in Alabama has been crazy last few weeks. I put my fiddle leaf fig outside as I do every year but suddenly we had a cold snap. I brought them back in but might not have been soon enough. I noticed next day several leaves were a reddish color & over next few days get darker. I'm assuming it was the cold exposure & I don't think it's dying but how's the best way to handle it? Should I cut affected leaves off, wait & let fall off or will this cause more shock? These are trees about 5-6 feet tall & seems most leaves affected are the larger ones & towards the upper part. Just want to save the trees & hopefully find a way to keep some sort of "balance" visually. In the pics you can see how much they're affected & has never looked this way. Thanks for listening and appreciate any help you can give!

Please ID

Please ID. Came from Ruffner Plant sale 2 yrs ago. Was told it attracts butterflies and it may be a host plant for them. I think it likes average moisture for soil. I don't know if sun or shade.
