5 Key Facts Estate Agents Should Know About Japanese Knotweed

Finding Japanese knotweed on a property can halt a house sale.

Whilst there are various ways to get rid of this invasive perennial, if identification is left until the 11th hour of the sale, it can become a nightmare problem to deal with. There’s a legal duty on Estate Agents to disclose the presence of Japanese knotweed under CPR, so in our experience it’s best to be honest with the buyer to gain their trust which should make any transaction go through without a hitch.
