Japanese knotweed growing in the garden

Non-disclosure of Japanese knotweed leads to massive increase in misrepresentation claims

A new warning has been issued to buyers of property about the ever increasing spread of Japanese knotweed.

Knotted is dubbed the “UK’s most aggressive and destructive plant”. Based upon the number of enquiries received in the last two months, it seems there must be many desperate sellers prepared to give false information to buyers in order to sell their property, perhaps without fully understanding the consequences of their deceit.
