Exclamation Dual Redidential/Holiday let, Knotweed

I require a dual purpose mortgage, we have a joint personal salary income of 270K, full time employment and only wish to borrow 550K. House is a substantial residential property that has a holiday let in its grounds.....The bad news is that it has some Japanese Knotweed in the grounds...any idea as to where and who I can approach please.....

Hello, If I understand correctly you seem to think you won't get a mortgage on a property with Knotweed? If so I am suprised because it is not a problem with the building itself and I know that Knotweed can be eliminated although having said that I suppose it becomes questionable as to where the knotweed is coming/growing from. If it's in neighboring property then the issue would be ongoing in which case I would steer clear, or go and see the neighbors. In short
because it is a plant it can be 'dug up' and removed. It would obviously be up to yourselves to ensure you get it all by digging deeper than usual.

Hi Ripper,

From my experience it will be pretty impossible to secure financing with knotweed on any part of the property as in the property industry that is really feared because of the destruction it leaves if there is a building still standing
