TerraSearch Coal is a Regulated “CON29M-Compliant” mining and ground risk report designed to inform and protect all parties within a property transaction.
The report uses enhanced data unavailable to the Coal Authority along with enhanced liability protection and expert interpretation to accurately quantify the risk to a property from nearby mine entries, hazards, shallow mining and subsidence claims, as well as all past, present and planned coal and brine extraction.
TerraSearch Coal Report includes all licensed Coal Authority data and a built-in loss of value insurance policy that answers the official CON29M questions to satisfy Law Society and Lender compliance.
A professional opinion is also provided, protected by Terms and Conditions that include a £10 million Professional Indemnity Policy, ensuring the client is better covered from incorrect or missing information.
Mine entries and underground voids associated with historical coal mining often extend long distances underground beneath residential and commercial sites (property and land). In the event of a collapse or subsidence, they can result in substantial damage and loss of value to buildings in proximity.
TerraSearch Coal satisfies and enhances Lender and Law Society due diligence, providing the ideal solution to those parts of the country where mining exists and lenders require an enhanced level of interpretation and a protected professional opinion, before deciding whether to lend.
This search identifies any historic underground extraction of Bath Stone or Fullers Earth or any metalliferous mining activity relating to the property.
