Japanese Knotweed Removal Advice For Homeowners | TP Knotweed

Knotweed advice for homeowners

When selling or buying a house, weeds may be the last thing on your mind. But we recommend that you start considering them, because if the slightest trace of Japanese Knotweed is found on your property – or even on your street – it could swiftly pull the plug on your plans.

If you are considering buying or selling a house, or planning a property development, we recommend getting a thorough survey of the property early on in proceedings, to avoid any nasty surprises later on. At TP Knotweed, we offer a free initial site check to identify Japanese Knotweed, mortgage surveys and comprehensive plans for Japanese Knotweed eradication.

Our specialist team can then identify the best way to treat or remove the issue.

How Can Japanese Knotweed Affect the Sale or Purchase of a House?

As if it wasn’t hard enough selling property in the current market, if a hint of Japanese Knotweed is found on your property it could cause a buyer to pull out immediately. Banks are also refusing mortgages if Japanese Knotweed is found. Everybody seems to be in fear of this pesky weed, due to the speed, height and ferocity with which it grows.

Knotweed has a reputation for putting a stop to property plans. One of the worst cases was reported two years ago in The Daily Mail, when a couple had their £300,000 new build property’s value drop by more than half, after knotweed was discovered to have spread from nearby land and invaded the property through the walls and flooring.

It’s vital that when considering selling your house, a thorough survey is conducted in order to identify any unexpected problems that could affect the sale or your property to allow treatment before the problem gets out of hand.
