If you have become aware of knotweed on your premises, it is important to have an expert visit, so we highly recommend obtaining a free site survey to confirm the extent of the problem and to establish the size and condition of your knotweed infestation.
The benefits of a site survey are huge, having someone come out to your property is imperative and should be actioned as soon as the knotweed is discovered. If Japanese Knotweed is left to grow, the cost of removal will also grow. In summer months Japanese Knotweed can grow up to 10cm a day and become a big problem quickly.
Japanese knotweed is being found in residential and commercial sites throughout the UK, from gardens and porches to driveways. If left untreated, it will spread, damaging everything around it.
The presence of Japanese knotweed on your property can also have negative selling implications. Please see Japanese Knotweed and mortgages section. All banks and building societies will require you to treat your knotweed before approving a mortgage. Mortgage surveyors are now noticing Japanese Knotweed on many surveys and must declare what has been found and feed it back to potential buyers. Due to rapid growth and notoriously damaging attributes, it’s likely to put people off.
Your free site survey can help us to identify and treat the problem.
