What Is Japanese Knotweed?
Japanese Knotweed is an invasive plant that is notoriously difficult to get rid of. If left unchecked, it can cause serious damage and can be very expensive to eradicate.
That’s why you can make a claim for compensation if someone else’s negligence has meant your property is infested with Japanese Knotweed.
Originally, the plant was introduced to the UK by the Victorians as an ornamental plant. But, it then became used to strengthen structures such as railway embankments and canals due to how strong and deep the roots grow, which helped keep these structures stable. However, that is what also makes this plant such a problem when it is not kept in check.
If you think you have an infestation, you should check whether or not it is Japanese Knotweed, or something else. Always err on the side of caution, though. And, if you do have an infestation, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
How Can I Get Compensation on No Win No Fee?
There are a few key scenarios where you may be eligible to claim. They include getting Japanese Knotweed from neighbouring land, such as a railway embankment, or not knowing that property you’ve bought already has an infestation. We go into both of these in more detail below.
