About this book

This Information paper is for RICS members and other professionals involved with the property industry.

It focuses primarily on the problems that Japanese Knotweed has been causing in the residential property sector, particularly the effect it can have on mortgageability. The Information Paper reflects the relevant legislation and regulations in Great Britain and includes the following:

- Why Japanese Knotweed has become a problem
- How Japanese Knotweed can damage a property
- Effective treatment of Japanese Knotweed in a residential context

Importantly, Japanese Knotweed and Residential Property sets out a framework for objectively assessing and reporting the risk posed to a property by the presence of Japanese Knotweed, helping home-owners, purchasers and lenders to make balanced and informed decisions.

Additionally, the glossary contains sources of further information and a unique Japanese Knotweed identification chart that will help practitioners identify the plant throughout the seasons.
