Japanese Knotweed

Japanese Knotweed

Japanese Knotweed penetrates everything and has incredible strength and can damage brickwork and concrete and therefore, structures. Patrick Moyle carried out a Full Building Survey on a property in a rural environment in Surrey near Dorking where Japanese Knotweed had penetrated through the private/septic tank drainage system causing major damage. The quotes for removal of the Japanese Knotweed from the large garden were approximately £50,000 and the replacement of the septic tank was around £20,000 (all plus VAT). The final bill was nearly £85,000 which was just under 10% of the purchase price. Our clients did not purchase and were thankful for the advice which saved them a small fortune.
