What types of dispute happen?
Disputes regarding Japanese knotweed are surprisingly common. The two most common scenarios are:-
- knotweed encroaching from one parcel of land to another, resulting in civil claims in private nuisance.
- provision of false or misleading information relating to the absence/presence of Japanese knotweed during property sale/purchase resulting in misrepresentation claims.
Thankfully most of these disputes are resolved out of court.
