Japanese Knotweed: The Implications Short course
Japanese Knotweed - the Implications
Japanese Knotweed may cause serious damage to property, and therefore property values. It's notoriously hard to treat, and poses a challenge to even the most experienced of property professionals.
When the RICS Information Paper on Japanese Knotweed and Residential Property was published in 2012, it became the most downloaded Information Paper ever produced by RICS. It brought clarity for valuers and surveyors, and helped lenders manage risk.
A second edition of the paper is anticipated, and this course will study the implications of the review, and how the changes will impact on surveyors and valuers. Important court judgements have been passed in 2018 – with more expected later in the year – and these will be considered along with some important research.
