Dealing with the problem of Japanese knotweed on next door’s land
A common occurrence is where the Japanese knotweed on your property extends into the next door neighbour’s plot or your property is free of the weed but it is within 7m of a boundary on adjacent land.
A collaborative approach is by far the best way to deal with the matter and any costs to be shared.
In some instances, Japanese knotweed can have been introduced to or spread along a number of properties. Achieving collaboration in such a case is more challenging and it would be advisable to take expert advice from the Japanese knotweed specialist like ourselves.
Once agreement has been reached, a plan drawn up and costs agreed, a solicitor should be employed to arrange a contract between all parties. It only takes one property owner to pull out and all the other properties are then put at risk
