Japanese knotweed – do you have a problem selling your house? or getting a mortgage?

Wednesday 30th August 2017

Japanese knotweed continues to spread and continues to make the news. It is in many respects a slow burning issue, typically starting as a small shoot, perhaps spread into your garden by soil disturbance. Over years it grows into a large bushy plant and then, you find out that you have a mature knotweed plant, often when you come to sell your house…

If you’re at this stage, don’t panic! We at The Knotweed Company have a team of qualified Japanese knotweed surveyors, and we are quite used to dealing with property sales and Japanese knotweed. We have a very good record of producing survey reports and solutions tailored to the property, which usually allow the sale to proceed without too much delay. Our success in this area is over 90%, although this may involve selecting a larger mortgage company, as opposed to the smaller lenders, who may have more restrictive criteria for lending on properties with a knotweed problem.

We are able to offer appropriate solutions for each property that has a problem with Japanese knotweed, and (naturally) can usually offer an insurance backed guarantee (if required).
