IVM’s methodology, known as the IVM ‘FAST‘ System (Foliage and Stem Treatment) treats Japanese Knotweed and other invasive species using the latest herbicides and application techniques.
The ‘FAST’ System uses different herbicides at different times of the year to kill different parts of the plant. In addition to the herbicides used, products are applied to improve translocation rates, limit evaporation and assist the herbicide to adhere to the plant.

Japanese Knotweed & Mortgages
Invasive Vegetation Management & Treatment Ltd (IVM) can offer a 10-year insured guarantee on any Japanese Knotweed eradication. This guarantee is as a result of direct consultation with the RICS.
Mortgage lenders will expect the presence of Japanese Knotweed to be noted on a residential valuation report. RICS red book guidance requires the valuer to indicate the presence of invasive vegetation. The RICS decided to consult with invasive weed experts and invited input from Japanese Knotweed companies throughout the UK.
To offer this insurance you have to be audited, scrutinised and prove that your business has expertise, good financial standing, are using appropriately qualified staff, first class customer service and comply with all statutory regulations. When accredited you are also automatically part of the Government endorsed Trustmark Scheme.
Now the good news! Detailed discussion with both the RICS and CML’s have convinced the insurance underwriters that companies accredited to such high standards were of minimal risk and a 10-year insured guarantee would be available providing and in support of a 10-year guarantee by the contracting company. It removes one of the obstacles to obtain funding as well as assisting in future sales.
