    It looks like Common Sorrel to me Yaz but I've never seen J Knotweed so maybe see if someone with more experience can identify it.

    It looks like some kind of dock to me. Possibly broad leaved dock.

    Whatever it is, it is not Japanese knotweed.

    I'd go with one of the sorrels. 

    I have seen JKW  ... it doesn't look like it to me  :)

    Don’t agree there. Knotweed flowers are quite pretty little cascades of white. Those flowers are pairs of green straggly rubbish.

    Sorry pansy but it is. The landlord has tried to hide behind other weeds, but it is Japanese Knotweed.

    In the first picture the plant at the back looks like JK to me.

    First pic: Plant in foreground looks like a dock of some kind, out of focus background plant looks like Japanese Knotweed. A better photo is needed though sorry.
    Second pic: Too small to tell sorry but I assume it's the doc plants again. Definitely not knotweed though.
