Japanese knotweed is a very fast-growing plant that can seriously damage your property and its value. If your property has been affected by Japanese knotweed spreading from someone else’s land, we could help you claim compensation.
All landowners have a duty to take steps to prevent avoidable damage to neighbouring properties.
Our solicitors could help you make a claim to:
Remove the knotweed in full
Repair any damage to your property
Potentially, make up for lost market value.
Some lenders won’t offer a mortgage to buy a property affected by Japanese knotweed, or will only lend under the condition that it’s removed. This can cost thousands and put potential buyers off.
Japanese knotweed can grow anywhere, but problems most commonly arise for homeowners whose property backs onto large areas of commercial land, like railway tracks and construction sites. If Japanese knotweed has spread to your property from land nearby, we can help you make a claim against the landowner responsible.
When multiple properties are affected at the same site, making a group claim can be the most effective way to take action. We have considerable experience of making group claims, and can help you and other homeowners get the compensation you need.
We can also help if you weren’t told about Japanese knotweed on your property when you bought it. Whether the seller failed to tell you or the surveyor didn’t identify it, we can help you make a claim against the person responsible.
