Japanese Knotweed Eradication in Knutsford
Japanese Knotweed is becoming an increasing problem in Knutsford, as we get many calls from worried home owners or home sellers who are under the threat of devaluation. This may be due to Japanese Knotweed growing on their property, or maybe Japanese Knotweed growing within 7m of their boundary. What can you do when Japanese Knotweed is devaluing your property?
Initially, the best way to proceed would be having a site survey completed on the property. You may have already had a survey carried out, but it will not have been fully surveyed for Japanese Knotweed. This survey report will give us enough details of the Japanese Knotweed to advise if the property is devalued or not. The survey will also give us details such as:
- Site location
- Site plan
- RICS assessment
- Analysis of where the Japanese Knotweed originated from
- Analysis of how the Japanese Knotweed originated
- If the Knotweed has caused any structural damage
Once you have a site survey report on the Japanese Knotweed, you will be able to provide this to mortgage lenders as your official declaration of the weed on your property.
If it is found that Japanese Knotweed is growing on your site/garden then we would recommend a management plan, which outlines the Japanese Knotweed eradication process. This management plan details the best treatment to eradicate it, the cost involved and a schedule of the works.
This also ensures that the safe and efficient removal of Japanese Knotweed is carried out.
