Knotweed Services (UK) Ltd were contacted by the client to organise a site survey of a commercial premises.
The client applied to re-mortgage the premises although the Mortgage Surveyor identified Japanese knotweed at the premises and instructed the client to instruct a PCA approved Japanese Knotweed Company to conduct a survey and to provide a Management Plan for the control of the Japanese Knotweed infestation.
The survey was booked in for the day after the initial enquiry. The client met us on site and was very concerned due to the amount of Japanese Knotweed that was present. The client was eager to get a report and quotation as soon as possible, due to the delay this would cause with the re- Mortgage application.
Whilst on site, the surveyor assured the client that his report would be sent into the office on the same day and to call the office later that day to request the quotation and report to be sent.
Later that day the client had received the survey report and quotation, a call was also made to the customer on the same day to see if there were any questions or queries regarding the report or quotation…..the customer replied:
I am so happy with the report and the quote to deal with the infestation I would like to go ahead please I was so worried this would take a lot longer and it has only taken 2 days over all and a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I can now proceed with the re-Mortgage application.
The client contacted us the following week to inform the Re-Mortgage application had been successful.
