The Property Care Association...
...a ‘badge of excellence’ enabling consumers to recognise professionalism and credibility.
The Property Care Association (PCA) is the trade association representing specialists who can be trusted to resolve problems affecting buildings.
The Property Care Association works to promote high standards of professionalism and expertise in the industry sectors it represents. This is done by developing and delivering professional training courses, and awarding industry recognised qualifications to those who study for and successfully pass their rigorous examinations.
We are proud to have technically proficient, qualified staff members who have successfully passed these rigorous PCA examinations:
- Certificated Surveyor in Japanese knotweed (CSJK)
- PCA Qualified Technician (PCAQT) – Japanese knotweed
Companies wishing to join the PCA are required to meet and maintain robust membership criteria. These criteria cover aspects of their services including professional qualifications, technical competence, service delivery and financial stability.
To remain members of the PCA, companies have to maintain high standards, and are audited regularly to ensure standards are being maintained. This gives consumers confidence that PCA members are robust and reliable companies to provide them with property care services.
The PCA also provides an industry voice on behalf of its members. The PCA works with government departments, responds to industry consultation documents and assists with the development of new guidelines, all with the aim of promoting best practice.
As members of the PCA Invasive Weed Control Group, Japanese Knotweed Ltd are able to offer an Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG), provided by Guarantee Protection Insurance Ltd (GPI) to safeguard our written company guarantees. Choosing a contractor who is a member of a recognised trade body, such as the PCA, is a wiser choice and can be a requirement of mortgage lenders when buying or selling a property affected by Japanese knotweed.
