Japanese knotweed and property auctions

If you are considering buying a property with an overgrown garden, maybe at auction, hoping to save some cash in the process, then you will be wise to do your research first. Buying a property without obtaining a knotweed survey is one way investors could save themselves some money to increase profit and returns.This overgrown, jungle-like garden was hiding an unwelcome resident for one property investor.

However, buyers beware! Saving on the cost of a knotweed survey could prove to be a very costly mistake as one Investor recently discovered. Japanese Knotweed Ltd was contacted to carry out a survey at a property with an overgrown garden that had been left untouched for many, many years.

Unfortunately, work on clearing the overgrown garden had already commenced and the new owner was planning to renovate the house in order to sell.

Our knotweed survey provides a report and drawings showing the extent of the contaminated ground. The survey also shows the RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) property risk category and notes the visible signs of damage caused by the knotweed to the buildings, structures and hard paving.

Japanese Knotweed Ltd provided this client with a comprehensive excavation solution including:
