30th May 2023 at 2:00 pm - Online

Japanese Knotweed is the UK’s most invasive plant, and due to the legal framework in place to protect homebuyers, it is an issue that conveyancers often need to confront. The risks the plant presents both to the property and the transaction itself are well documented, but what recent developments do conveyancers need to know about?
