Japanese knotweed is an invasive plant species which is capable of causing considerable damage and nuisance. In some cases the discovery of the plant on your property can result in mortgage companies refusing to lend and therefore making it more difficult to sell and indeed therefore affecting the final sale value.
However concerns regarding Japanese Knotweed are commonly misunderstood by both homeowners and purchasers. Therefore if you are selling a property that has Japanese Knotweed it would be prudent to engage with Hus Estate Agents (Peter Ellicock, Director) who deals with Japanese Knotweed issues on a regular basis for homeowners in Cornwall.
There is plenty of excellent advice from Environet UK Ltd for buyers and sellers of property infested with knotweed.
