Japanese Knotweed Removal in Richmond Upon Thames

Japanese Knotweed removal and advice by Local Chartered Surveyors and PCA members covering Richmond Upon Thamesand the surrounding areas.

Interesting fact about Richmond Upon Thames …The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames is the only London borough on both sides of the River Thames. It was created in 1965 when three smaller council areas amalgamated under the London Government Act 1963.Beside the River Thames in the Old Deer Park are a pair of stone obelisks. They were built in 1874 and were originally used by the King’s Observatory to observe the transit of Venus across the Sun that year. However, a legend says that they were erected in the 18th century as memorials to two men who lost their lives in a duel over a woman, who drowned herself in the river.

Guarantee Promise

We are proud to provide a 5 year guarantee (free of charge) with all of our treatment programmes. A 10 year insurance backed guarantee can also be provided.

The majority of the UK major lenders will refuse to lend against a property if their surveyor identifies Japanese knotweed at a property you are purchasing, selling or even re-mortgaging, especially if it is located within seven metres of a habitable space. This is due to the aggressive nature of the plant and potential damage it can cause to the building, consequently severely affecting the value of the property.

As a minimum, the mortgage lender will request a ‘Japanese Knotweed Management Plan’. The Japanese Knotweed Management Plan must contain:

  • A description of the property with an accurate record of the Japanese Knotweed infestation;
  • Any past treatments undertaken;
  • Objectives, including timescales;
  • A scaled plan with dimensions and supporting photographs ;
  • The full details of the contracting organisation and a description of the methods to be used to eradicate Japanese Knotweed and the associated risks of that method;
  • A suggested monitoring period.

Although conditions will vary from lender to lender, in practice lenders will generally want to see evidence of an initial treatment and a commitment by the owner/purchaser of the property to fund in advance the treatment programme along with a 5-10 year insurance backed guarantee.

With Chartered Surveyors (full members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) and Valuation Surveyors in house currently working directly for the majority of the UK major lenders, we are perfectly placed to deal and act upon their individual requirements to ensure they are able to lend against the property.
