The Groundsure CON29M Official Coal Mining Search is an official CON29M coal mining report for residential or commercial properties, brought to you by Groundsure and Mining Searches UK licensed by the Law Society using official Coal Authority Data.
The report answers all of the official 11 questions for residential transactions and 14 questions for commercial transactions as requested in the Law Society CON29M Guidance Notes (2018) and has additional information should the property fall within the Cheshire Brine Compensation district.
The CON29M is a legal form set out by the Law Society to provide information on past, present and future underground and surface coal mining activity for individual properties or sites in England and Wales. It is requested by solicitors on behalf of their clients as part of the conveyancing searches purchased in a coal mining or past coal mining area.
The Law Society guidance 2018 requests that the following questions are answered in the residential CON29M and these are all covered in this report:
This search identifies any historic underground extraction of Bath Stone or Fullers Earth or any metalliferous mining activity relating to the property.
