This is a rear domestic property (Click here to find out more about our domestic Japanese Knotweed removal services) situated in West Bromwich, we were contacted by the landlord to conduct a survey as they are re-mortgaging the property and a Mortgage Surveyor has suspected Japanese Knotweed in the rear garden.
Knotweed Services attended to conduct a survey in June 2018, (see images below) Access was gained via a gate to the rear of the property.
The Tenant informed our Surveyor she had been cutting down the suspected Japanese Knotweed to floor level since she had lived there approximately for 3 months, although she also informed her mom had previously lived at the property and had also been cutting it down for several years not knowing what it was.
INSURANCE BACKED GUARANTEES (IBG’S)
The customer was provided with information regarding the IBG and went ahead with Knotweed Express Policy. A booklet was also provided to the customer regarding what the Express IBG covers.
WHAT IS GPI’S KNOTWEED EXPRESS IBG?
The general principle of our Knotweed Express IBG is simple. It will honour the terms of the written guarantee, originally issued to you by your contractor, where that contractor has ceased to trade and is, therefore, unable to meet their guarantee obligations by carrying out or meeting the costs of any re-treatment works that may be required during their written guarantee.

After 2 very successful treatments in the first year Knotweed Services are proud to show how effective a Herbicide Treatment Plan can be if this is Treated at the correct time of
year and the correct Treatment method is used.
Although the customer had been cutting it down Knotweed Services are always happy to help especially when it comes to buying or selling or even re-mortgaging your property. The next visit will be in the growing season of 2019.
