Our Japanese knotweed policy now covers reduction in market value


We're pleased to announce an enhancement to our unrivalled Japanese knotweed cover: if the market value of the property is reduced by a claim, we will cover the loss when your client seeks to sell it.

There is a risk that lenders and valuers might reduce the value of a property due to the stigma attached to Japanese knotweed, even after it has been successfully treated.

This means that knotweed has the potential to cause your clients heartache and expense even after it has been eradicated. But with our improved Japanese knotweed policy, your client can rest assured that their worries will disappear with the knotweed itself.
