How to make a Japanese Knotweed claim

Firstly you need to identify and be sure it’s Japanese Knotweed that encroaching into your property. We have dealt with cases where it has emerged into the gardens and also into the brickwork/grounds of homes too. Obviously the later causes more disturbance to people’s homes unfortunately.

Who can make a claim for Japanese Knotweed?

This mainly affects people’s homes, so if you are a home owner you can potentially make a no win, no fee claim with us.
However, we have dealt with a few cases where Japanese knotweed has grown into commercial buildings and again we have had success helping the estate owner making a claim.

How do I know if I can make a claim?

Once you have identified it is Japanese knotweed you need to do the following:

  1. Are you the owner of the building/home? If yes, proceed to point 2. If not, refer to the owner of the building immediately so they can act straight away. This will only develop and unfortunately get worse. You can fill in the contact form below and we can contact the owner of the building/home on your behalf as long as they consent to us calling them.
  2. When you bought the property, did you have a professional survey completed on the property? If yes, proceed to point 3.
  3. We will need a copy of the survey and pictures of the Japanese knotweed in the near future, so please have both handy.
  4. Give us a call today or fill in the contact form below.
