Insurance backed guarantees
Our guarantees can be issued to any type of site whether it is a residential home or a construction site be developed into a housing development. Our guarantees also act as a solution to funding and house/land sale issues. The guarantee is a treatment certificate that is required by mortgage companies in order to allow mortgaging. In black and white, this is the best and only guarantee you can get when it comes to Japanese Knotweed! Our guarantees are independently written and approved not only by the Invasive Weed Group of the Property Care Association (PCA), but they are also recognised by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
We can offer both 5 and 10-year insurance backed guarantees with all our Japanese Knotweed treatments and they offer ‘complete peace of mind’ from the day our treatment is carried out.
As PCA approved contractor, we can also offer Insurance Backed Guarantees to give you that extra peace of mind. These insurance policies are offered by GPI (Guaranteed Protection Insurance Ltd) for a one off additional cost.
GPI are a general insurer authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority and insurance backed means that in the unlikely event that we were unable to continue as a business, your Japanese Knotweed guarantee policy would continue to be effective and covered by another PCA contractor approved by GPI. This policy of insurance can also be passed to future home-owners (at a fee) and a Japanese knotweed survey will need to be undertaken if not carried out at the start of the treatment plan.

Why is a Japanese Knotweed guarantee so important?
Due to the way Japanese Knotweed grows, spreads and survives, Japanese Knotweed is a very difficult plant to eradicate and can cause significant damage if not treated correctly.
Our guarantee ensures that if our Japanese Knotweed treatment and removal processes do not work, then under your Japanese Knotweed guarantee, you are covered for up to 5, 10 or 35 years from the completion of our treatment plan. You will need to contact us as soon as you have seen any re-growth (as stated in the guarantee) so that we can arrange for a surveyor to survey your property (subject to the terms of our guarantee). Please ensure you keep all of your original paperwork in a safe place.
We can offer guarantees for both residential and commercial sites including new builds.
