Japanese Knotweed Management Plan

Japanese Knotweed Management Plan

Management Plan is a document with a schedule of the actions that will be undertaken to resolve your Japanese Knotweed problem. A tentative management plan is outlined in the survey report that gives the client an opportunity to decide if proposed options are well suited for their particular needs. Once the program to treat Japanese Knotweed is approved and paid a Management Plan will be issued and forwarded to the client. The document is an official confirmation of the agreement between the client and us to carry on treatment/monitoring course. 

Concerns and requirements when you buy or sell the property

Japanese Knotweed  can be a serious issue when you purchase or sell a property. The plant can cause concerns due to its powerful underground rhizome system system that may potentially damage the foundations, walls and drainage systems. Within the seller’s pack, a TA6 Law Society Information Form (PDF, 282 kB) designed by the Law Society should be completed by the seller that may be relied upon for the conveyancing process. Section 7.8 of the TA6 form requests you to answer the following questions:

  • Is the property affected by Japanese Knotweed?
  • If Yes, please state whether there is a Japanese Knotweed management plan in place and supply a copy.

This actually means that if the property is affected by Japanese Knotweed and a management plan on its eradication/control is not provided by a reputable contractor the mortgage application of a potential buyer may be rejected.

Japanese Knotweed Plus Ltd has helped to sell successfully properties across the North West.

Our management plans are flexible and will be tailored during the treatment/monitoring course if required. As the growth of Japanese Knotweed is strongly affected by the weather conditions, location, exposure to sunlight and other factors, thus the forthcoming treatment schedule may be changed for greater effect.

During the busy periods of application of treatment we make every effort to deliver amended management plan to our clients as soon as possible. Our facilities allow providing many of our clients with an amended management plan within 30 minutes after visiting their site.
