Knot Weed and Infestations

No Win, No Fee Claims for Japanese Knotweed Infestation claims

Japanese Knotweed is trouble, lots of trouble. Once it takes a hold of you land it can spread quickly. If you allow Knotweed to spread from you land it can be a criminal offence so the first thing to do if you have knotweed on your land is contact a contractor that can help you get rid of it.

Once you have done so, record the problem, with lots of photographs and videos. If you think the knotweed has come to your land from the land of a third party photograph and video that too if you can. If the Knotweed is near a water course inform the environmentagency as it can spread quickly along canals and marsh.

The cost knotweed can be expensive, from getting rid of it (which can take years) to the itseffect on the value of your house and the fact that you can’t enjoy your garden any more.

How do you claim against a plant?

There are three main areas where you may be able to make a claim.

  • Firstly, from the source of the knotweed. If the infestation has been present on land close to your own before it reached your land then you can potentially claim from the owner of that land.
  • Secondly, If you bought a house and the seller did not tell you that there was knotweed present you can potentially claim your losses back from the seller.
  • Lastly, if you bought a house and your surveyor failed to pick up on the infestation they may be liable for your losses. 

If you have a knotweed problem and believe that one of the above circumstances may apply to you and you would like to see if we can help you get the compensation you deserve then give us a call or request a call back on this web site. We may be able to help you on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.
