Japanese Knotweed and Your Property
If you have Japanese Knotweed on your property, and you want to sell, you need to start a treatment plan as soon as possible. Knotweed on or within 3 metres of your boundary is of concern!
If your property is infested, or there is knotweed in proximity, a lender will not offer a mortgage on the property and your buyer will not be able to proceed.
It is vital the treatment plan is well progressed and all knotweed removed. Knotweed is virulent, spreads rapidly and damages properties.
Knotweed on a neighbouring property is likely to cause you issues because of its proximity.
Lenders do not like anything that affects property value and their security.
Speak to a professional outfit about remediation and a treatment plan urgently. Sellers have been sued for misleading buyers about knotweed.
