Terrafirma CON29M Report

Terrafirma was the first commercial organisation licensed by the Law Society as a report producer of the official CON29M.

The CON29M report is an official Law Society legal search form used when buying and selling domestic properties within coal mining reporting zones. The Terrafirma CON29M answers all official CON29M questions on coal mining and combines all Coal Authority data, Terrafirma’s expert knowledge of geohazards and advice from a panel of recognised industry professionals, to assess the risk to land and property in coal mining areas.

  • Terrafirma now also provides an expert assessment and advice relating to non-coal mining hazards within Coal Authority data, which will further help and provide support to conveyancers and prospective homeowners.
  • The report includes our expert opinion, which explains how coal mining could affect the property (and in turn the prospective purchaser and lender) and details any next steps that we recommend safeguarding their investment.
  • The report is supported with our colour-coded User Key, which flags each section of the report for the appropriate party’s attention (e.g., lender, conveyancer or purchaser) and eliminates the requirement for the conveyancer to report on a liability they may not have detailed knowledge of, and reduces the amount of time a conveyancer spends reporting back to the client and the lender.
  • As standard the CON29M report includes a Mine Entry Interpretive Report, where a mine entry (shaft or adit) is identified within 20 metres, saving approximately £150 in additional costs and ensuring that the discovery of a mine entry doesn’t slow down the transaction unnecessarily.
  • The report also includes, at no additional cost, all relevant coal-mining subsidence claims information, equivalent to the information provided within a subsidence claims buffer report.
  • It also is supported with comprehensive terms and conditions, including a £10 million Professional Indemnity Policy per CON29M and a loss of value insurance of £100,000 per report covering any subsequent change in Coal Authority data.
