We were contacted by our client to conduct a survey at a residential property within the High Wycombe area. Our client had concerns with a number of zones of Japanese Knotweed at their property and a neighbouring property.
The site survey concluded three zones of Japanese Knotweed identified at the clients property during time of survey. Approx 4m2 per affected area. It appeared that the Neighbouring property zone of JKW had been treated for several years. Due to our client developing the site we agreed to proceed with excavating the three zones.

Knotweed Services UK offer their insurance backed guarantees through Guarantee Protection Insurance Ltd (GPI). GPIs primary and founding product was IBG’s and they are in the industries leaders in Japanese Knotweed insurance. The package we recommended for this project is the is “designed to provide cover in the event that the insured remedial works fail, during the period of insurance, and the contractor has ceased to trade and is unable to honour claims on the written guarantee.” (GPI, 2017).
*Taking out an IBG is optional. However, if you are in the process of selling, an IBG is a requirement from the mortgage lenders.
