The reality about Japanese knotweed.

Sadly, Japanese Knotweed causes a variety of difficulties for both domestic home owners and commercial properties. If you are a home owner the most significant dilemma is that mortgage providers and banks often refuse to lend against a property that has an infestation. This has implications for both buyers and sellers (find out more by reading our buyers and sellers guide to Japanese Knotweed) and if you’re intending to re-mortgage your property. If you’re a commercial land or property owner and Japanese Knotweed is present, your project can result in being delayed for extended periods of time until or whilst your infestation is being dealt with correctly and legally.

To summarise the problems that Japanese Knotweed can cause

  • Japanese Knotweed can grow through tarmac and concrete, which poses a threat to the structure of your building or property.
  • Banks WILL refuse to give mortgages out or loan against infected properties.
  • A plant the size of a 5 pence piece can and will grow into a HUGE plant.
  • Spreading Japanese Knotweed is very easy and can be spread by both machinery and humans. This may then create a new plant. No matter how poor or infertile the land is.
  • Japanese Knotweed was responsible for costing the government £70 million because it was present on the UK olympic development site! Read more here.
  • The UK government reports that it may cost £2 billion to eradicate Japanese knotweed totally from our shores!
  • Hinders both visibility and access to paths, roads and other infrastructure. Producing a massive headache for commercial properties particularly.
  • If not dealt with – it can become very expensive to manage. The earlier you choose our Japanese knotweed removal Barry service – the cheaper it will be.
