Japanese Knotweed and residential property

This information paper aims to help residential practitioners consider the implications of a Japanese Knotweed infestation on or near a dwelling, when undertaking valuations and surveys of residential property in the UK.

Importantly, the paper sets out a framework for objectively assessing and reporting the risk posed to a property by the presence of Japanese Knotweed, helping home-owners, purchasers and lenders to make balanced and informed decisions.
