Recently, one of our expert field technicians conducted a site survey of a commercial unit in West Bromwich (just outside of Birmingham).
The commercial unit is being sold to the owner of the unit next door. Japanese knotweed is present on the grounds of the commercial unit – 7 metres away.
Although the knotweed is over 7 metres from the structure of the building it still falls into Cat 3 on the RICS scale and the buyers want the Japanese knotweed infestation dealt with before proceeding with the purchase of the property.
Knotweed Services have now quoted for the business which the current owner will pay for – therefore allowing the sale to progress.
Japanese knotweed continues to be featuring heavily in the news (radio, TV and news papers). The government has recently introduced laws and penalties for those that don’t manage their Japanese knotweed invasion.
Discovering Japanese Knotweed on or around your property can be quite distressing. Knotweed Services UK understand that no one wants to be told their property is worth less because of an aggressive weed in their garden however Japanese Knotweed will inevitably devalue your property. Eradicating it yourself would be very difficult and would require lots of time researching the plant properly. It would also require you to purchase expensive equipment, that’s why we strongly suggest using a specialist contractor such as ourselves. We have the professional training and experience to effectively eradicate any Japanese Knotweed infestation.
