Case study: DISCOVER HOW WE HELPED THE GUINNESS PARTNERSHIP

The Guinness Partnership (which owns and manages around 65,500 homes) approached Japanese Knotweed Ltd (JKL) to assess the problem of Japanese knotweed on some of their managed properties. JKL’s PCA and CSJK qualified surveyors inspected these residential properties recording the presence of knotweed and assessing the perceived property risk, in accordance to the RICS property risk category for knotweed (IP 27/2012). A survey report, site plan and photographic record of the inspection was provided separately for each property.
