Should I get a Japanese Knotweed Survey when selling my property?

Question: Should I get a Japanese Knotweed Survey when selling my property?

Answer: Yes, when selling, especially if there’s a history or signs of Japanese Knotweed, a survey can provide necessary information for potential buyers.

A Closer Look: 

When selling a property, obtaining a Japanese Knotweed Survey is highly advisable, especially if there is a history or visible signs of this invasive plant. A survey provides potential buyers with detailed information about the presence and extent of Japanese Knotweed on the property, ensuring transparency and building trust. This is crucial as many buyers and lenders are wary of properties affected by Knotweed due to its potential to cause structural damage and the costs associated with its removal.

Moreover, having a Japanese Knotweed Survey can expedite the sales process by addressing any concerns upfront. It demonstrates that you, as the seller, are proactive and responsible, providing necessary documentation that can facilitate mortgage approval and insurance coverage for the buyer. This proactive approach can prevent potential legal disputes and renegotiations, making the sale smoother and more straightforward​
