If Japanese knotweed spreads from one property to another the relevant law is that of private nuisance.  A private nuisance is an act or omission which is an interference with, disturbance of or annoyance to a person in the exercise or enjoyment of his ownership or occupation of land.

If a landowner has knotweed growing in the garden of his property he should make every effort to control the knotweed and prevent this invasive weed from spreading onto a neighbouring property and if they fail to do this they could be held responsible for the damage caused by the encroachment. If we are able to prove that your property is affected by knotweed because of encroachment the landowner of the adjacent property could be held responsible and we could bring about a claim on your behalf.

We are often contacted by homeowners that suspect they have knotweed encroachment from railway lines or commercial land close to their property. Not only does this cause for concern for the buildings on their property, but the invasive nature of the weed can cause loss of enjoyment of the garden.

Here at Cobleys we will investigate your case and advise the best approach to try and claim for the treatments costs of getting rid of your Knotweed and get you as much compensation as we can.

Japanese Knotweed Misrepresentation

Paperwork in conveyancing, when selling a house, includes a form called the Law Society Property Information Form, or a "TA6". This form ensures that the Solicitor asks the Seller whether the property is currently or has ever been affected by Japanese Knotweed.

If knotweed is identified then before the mortgage company will lend the purchaser the  money they usually ask for evidence that there is a Treatment or Knotweed Management Plan (KMP) in place.

If you have bought a house that's affected by Japanese knotweed, and the seller has failed to identify this on the TA6 Form then you may be  able to bring about a claim against the seller as they have misrepresented the facts.
Our experts will help establish a timeline as to the growth of the Knotweed and thus determine how long it was on the property prior to the purchase. They can also identify if it has been treated previously as this can be evidence that the seller was aware of the issue.

When a property is affected by Japanese knotweed, whether it is in the boundary or within close proximity it loses considerable value and your home may be worth less than you paid for it. This is called diminution of value.
Here at Cobleys we will investigate your case and advise the best approach to try and claim for the treatments costs of getting rid of your Knotweed and get you as much compensation as we can.

If you have purchased a property and paid for a professional survey (valuation) to be carried out and the surveyor did not pick up the presence of Japanese Knotweed, you may be able to bring a claim against the surveyor for professional negligence.

If you are able to show that the surveyor should have noticed the presence  / evidence of Japanese Knotweed, you can make a claim.

Surveyors have had a legal responsibility to check for the presence of Japanese Knotweed whilst conducting such surveys but it is our experience that it was overlooked or missed on many occasions.

If after having purchased your property you discover you have an infestation of Japanese knotweed on your land or Japanese knotweed within close proximity to your land we may be able to help you bring about a claim for professional negligence.

When a property is affected by Japanese knotweed, whether it is inside the boundary or within close proximity of the boundary it can lose considerable value and your home may be worth less than you paid for it. This is called diminution of value.

Here at Cobleys we will investigate your case and advise the best approach to try and claim for the treatments costs of getting rid of your Knotweed and get you as much compensation as we can.

TIPS FOR PERSONAL INJURY

1. They’re cheap & cheerful, but they could make a massive difference to your compensation claim – use the camera on your mobile phone or keep a disposable/throw away camera in your car’s glove compartment at all times. This way, if you are involved in an accident, you’ll have the opportunity to document evidence of what happened, the location of the accident and any damage through photographs.
 
2. Contrary to what your insurance provider may advise, you are under no obligation to use the services of their chosen solicitor for your personal injury compensation claim – make sure that you choose a personal injury solicitor who you feel confident with.
 
3. Keep a diary – injuries as a result of an accident may not be noticeable straight away. On top of this, it can sometimes take a few weeks for your medical appointment with the solicitors chosen doctor to happen. Keeping how you have been feeling in writing will be a massive help in this appointment and towards your compensation case. Don’t forget to include details of any day to day activities which have been affected, or that you can no longer complete without assistance.
 
4. Never under estimate the importance of the finer details in your personal injury compensation case – something which you consider to be irrelevant or unimportant, whether it be a slight pain you have been feeling or something which you noticed at the scene of the accident, could be the link that your solicitor is looking for. Remember this – your solicitor will always work to ensure you get the compensation you deserve for your injury. It stands to reason that the more evidence & details that they have on what happened to you, the more they will be able to fight to get you the maximum compensation.
 
5. Keep your solicitor up to date – having the right contact details on file for our clients is incredibly important. Your solicitor needs to be kept up to date if there are changes in your circumstances or contact details. Maybe it is a simple as you’ve got a new mobile number. Having the right address on file for our clients is essential for case notes and paperwork to be posted out. Pick up the phone and let your solicitor know if anything on your contact details is incorrect, or if there’s any changes during your case.
 
And here’s a few ‘Did you knows…’ on personal injury compensation cases
 
  • If you’ve been in an accident and your insurers have settled on a 50:50 basis, you can still claim for personal injury compensation
  • If you’ve been involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, you can still claim for personal injury compensation
  • As long as it has been reported to the Police, if you’ve been in accident with an untraceable driver, you can still claim for personal injury compensation
  • If you’ve been injured in someone else’s house, you can claim for personal injury compensation on their home insurance.
