Japanese Knotweed Site Survey
As part of buying, selling or re-mortgaging a property you may be required to undertake a Japanese knotweed survey. Our site surveys identify and record the knotweed problem and accurately assess the risk category in accordance with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) guidelines. They outline the most cost effective treatment solution and include site drawings, photos and all recommendations are backed by our Professional Indemnity Insurance.
If you think you might have knotweed but want to make sure, please email us 3 or 4 photos of the suspect plant to knotweed(at)henderson-taylor.co.uk
If we can identify knotweed from the photos provided we can then discuss your requirements to control or remove it, and provide a quotation often without the need to visit your property.
Removal and Disposal
We may employ several techniques at a single site in order to achieve a cost effective remediation solution.
We are able to remove knotweed and incinerate it in situ, thereby considerably reducing costs by removing expensive landfill charges.
