Our Site Survey includes:

- A record of the plant location including a map
- An outline of any development plans and past control work
- A risk assessment as per the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)
Our site survey and reports are charged from £312.00 and will be provided within 48 hours of the site visit. Included with this will also be a Japanese Knotweed Management Plan which will outline how we would eradicate the invasive weed and how much this would cost.

Why would Japanese knotweed cause problems when purchasing a property with a mortgage?
You may find that it is difficult getting a mortgage for a property where Japanese knotweed is present in the United Kingdom. There is no set policy on whether or not lenders will provide financial support to clients looking to buy properties with Japanese knotweed but, generally, these clients are refused.
This is due to Japanese knotweed being highly invasive and have the potential to cause serious damage to drains, boundary/retaining walls, paths and driveways, patios and decking, flood defence structures, outbuildings, conservatories and gardens. Mortgage lenders are advised to refuse a mortgage on a property where Japanese knotweed is within 7 metres (23 feet) of the property’s boundaries.
