Removal of Japanese Knotweed in Ashbourne
If removal of Japanese Knotweed in Ashbourne is not carried out it can cause structural damage to walls, buildings and structural foundations. This has been seen in Ashbourne, which is why most mortgage lenders refuse to lend against a property which has the premise of Japanese Knotweed causing damage. What options do you have if you are looking to sell your property but have the annoyance of Japanese Knotweed growing on your / neighbouring land?
Initially we would recommend that you have a site survey carried out on the property, as we will be able to determine the following:
- Age of stands
- Origin of stands
- If there is structural damage / premise of structural damage
- RICS assessment
- If the stands are located to any high-risk areas
Knowledge of this information will help you to pinpoint liability. As if the Knotweed has not originated on your property, and has spread over from your neighbour’s property, they are accountable for the treatment and eradication of the Japanese Knotweed. If the Japanese Knotweed does spread onto neighbouring land, they may be subject to a £2,500.00 fine and an ABSO.
Once you have the survey, we will be able to base a management plan on what was found. Meaning that you will have a customised treatment plan for you personally about your Japanese Knotweed infestation. This will have a breakdown of costs involved to you, alongside a fully comprehensive risk assessment, and methods of treatment. This will ensure the swift removal of Japanese Knotweed in Ashbourne.
