Advice for homeowners

Amidst the flurry of paperwork and packing when selling your 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, 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.

What’s This Got To Do With Selling My 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 been making headlines over the past few years, with a number of newspapers reporting on property plans scuppered. 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.

Combating Japanese Knotweed

There are several methods on how to get rid of the weed and which one you need will be determined on the scale of the issue. The earlier you find the invasive weed is also very important as the quicker it is found the easier it is to remove. At TP Knotweed we over a free site inspection and if the weed is found we offer a price match guarantee and a 10 year mortgage backed guarantee. This is our promise that your property is protected against the regrowth of Japanese knotweed after eradication.
