Abstract

Reflects on the potential impact of the presence of Japanese knotweed on a property's value. Reviews council powers concerning knotweed clearance, the role of species control agreements, and case law involving a nuisance action for allowing knotweed to spread to adjoining land. Considers the efforts buyers should make to discover knotweed's presence, a surveyor's duties, the merits of property passports, and the information they should include.
