Surveyor 大戰RHS園藝師 之“日本虎杖” Japanese Knotweed in Home Buyer Survey

Updated: Dec 12, 2022



話說谷友V offer 了一間新裝屋仔,還有個靚靚花園。但收到Home Buyer Report 時心沉一沉,因為發現了日本虎杖 (Japanese Knotweed) 。有買英國屋的朋友一定知道呢種可怕植物,因為有很大入侵性,生長起來會影響屋的結構,因此好難做按揭,對日後賣出都很大影響。




其實Agent睇樓都大概看過,似沒有日本虎杖影踪,V都很頭痕點算,問我意見。我覺得既然Surveyor 說有,真係沒理由繼續買。 當V同Agent講間屋個Survey report 有問題時,Agent不久後回覆Seller 話沒可能有日本虎杖。點解個Seller咁大聲咁肯定?原來…

“Ms XXX (seller) is RHS qualified and personally landscaped and planted the garden 18 months ago, …. The plant is persicaria capitat. It is a smartweed in the knotweed family but is NOT Japanese knotweed… You can buy it at a famous horticulturalist called JJ Parker.”

原來咁啱個Seller係有RHS 專業資格的園藝師 (Royal Horticultural Society 皇家園藝學會)。她圖文並茂講解係咩野品種同一家族但唔係invasive品種。V最後將RHS的回應交給Surveyor,Surveyor 最後都同意將Level 3 問題變返Level 1,真係來回地獄又折返人間。





Touchwood 牛姐妹咁耐都未遇過有日本虎杖的屋仔,亦明白有時SA睇屋都未必真係睇到,今次谷友V真係不幸中既大幸,竟然咁啱個Seller係RHS qualified. 否則就白白Pull Out 了。。。

所以話,在UK買屋,除了經驗,運氣都好重要!
