Rip off Britain - Japanese Knotweed


On 18th June, the BBC aired an episode of Rip Off Britain which included a feature about Japanese knotweed. If you didn't catch it, it is available until 19 July 2018 on the BBC iPlayer here (Series 10: Episode 6 - you may need to register an account to view the episode). 

It highlights the requirement for sellers to declare in a TA6 (or Property Information Form) if the property is affected by Japanese knotweed but when it comes to newly built homes, the seller isn’t required to make the same disclosure. It's certainly an interesting watch.
