Japanese knotweed near property boundary

Japanese knotweed on your property is a problem, but this invasive plant can also pose a problem if it's growing near your property. RICS guidance states that a mortgage valuer, when surveying a property for Japanese knotweed, must report any knotweed found within 3 metres of the property boundary to the lender (which can complicate the process of buying or selling the property in question).


What should I do if there's Japanese knotweed near my property?

If you suspect there is Japanese knotweed growing within 3m of your property boundary, you should start by contacting an invasive weed specialist. They will be able to confirm whether knotweed is present and assess the extent of the infestation.

The next step may involve asking the owner of the neighbouring land to deal with their knotweed problem before it encroaches on your property. An experienced Japanese knotweed specialist will be able to help with this too.
