Heart of Valley show

Catherine being interviewed on welsh radio

We decided to support this British Heart Foundation agricultural show on the Riverside Arena in Pontardawe.
Luckily it was probably the best day of 2012 weatherwise and we had a great time.
We met friends and clients old and new and spread the word that finding Knotweed on a property does not necessarily prevent you from buying or selling it.
Helped on the stall by my bilingual daughter Catherine she proved invaluable when interviewed for a Welsh language radio show.
Thanks to the organiserd, Hope to see you next year

Hope to see you!

Dinas Noddfa Cemetery – A tomb with a view!

Although TV’s Alan Titchmarsh had a go at it, one treatment does NOT solve the problem. On the other hand we at Clean Ground Partners are here for the long haul and not just one programme.

We have just been asked to produce an effective treatment plan to rid this area of Knotweed once and for all. Obviously this will take time but we have the experience and the patience to tackle Knotweed on its own terms……. and defeat it!!!!

Happy Lender

Good morning,

We are currently processing a mortgage application for Mr XXXX .  We understand he is purchasing XXXXXXXXXX which has a Japanese Knotweed Growth in the garden.

I would appreciate any further details you have, as you are aware JKW is a major concern for lenders as and such we are keen to understand a bit more before we make an acceptability decision.

Kind Regards

And, ………..

Hi Gabe,

Thank you very much for your quick and detailed response, I really appreciate it. I thought the map was great, its really helpful for me to understand the location so thank you again for the detail.

We will definitely keep you in mind for any JKW cases although we don’t get many that we get involved with unless they are cases which are live, but I will add you to our internal specialist lists.

What we will be doing now is asking the client to sign an undertaking which says that you should be instructed within 6 weeks of completion to start the first treatment. At 6 weeks I will then contact you to see whether the instruction has been made.

Once again thank you for your help with this matter

Samantha Ash
