Management Plan

Japanese Knotweed Management Plan

A 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 out a course of treatment/monitoring.

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 that may potentially damage the foundations, walls and drainage systems. Within the seller’s pack, a TA6 Law Society Information Form, 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, 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 successfully sell properties across the North West.

Our Japanese Knotweed management plan & control work report

Japanese Knotweed management planWe will produce a high-quality print-ready PDF-version of the document that will satisfy your solicitor and buyer’s mortgage lender. The document supplements a survey report, with emphasis on the work schedule. It includes planned work, describing the work that should be done in the specified period. Any associated risks to the client, neighbours, pets, neighbouring plants and the environment will be outlined in the document and discussed with the client. It will also feature a description of the work completed.

After each stage of the treatment/monitoring course, the document will be amended and sent to the client. Photographs showing evidence of the work that has been done at each stage will be included where appropriate.
