News

02/10/2023

Claims relating to Japanese Knotweed have multiplied in recent years. As a result of rising property values, even minor diminution in value to the average property can now merit allocation to the multi-track.

In Thursday’s webinar Conor Kennedy examined some important themes in such claims, including issues relating to:

  • The extent of surveyors’ duties.
  • Expert evidence.
  • Quantification of loss.
