Japanese Knotweed - should I buy this house?
juliet.cawley Posts: 3
Hi, I was wondering if anyone can advise me. We are looking to buy a house, but it has Japanese Knotweed by a stream that is not too close to buildings. It has been treated for 5 years so far, but I'm not sure if this ever goes away. Is this a problem that can be contained, or is it best to avoid like the plague? Thanks
How big a patch of it is there? And has it been brought up by the surveyor or the current owners? Do they have certificates or documents about the treatment?
I'm not sure I'd by a house " by a stream" either.
On the plus side, we get fantastic wild life: trout, Crayfish, Water Shrews etc.

Now, as the seller, read this
OK, you can wake up now, it was only a dream.
Do you still want to buy it?
If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
