Coal Mining Searches are vital for anyone buying a property in any coal mining area of Britain.

The coal authority report reveals information on any past, present and future underground coal mining, revealing whether the property is likely to be affected by existing works or if a license has been granted for mining coal in the future.

The coal search also gives details on the location of shafts, information on any known faults to the coal authority that is likely to affect the stability of the property and details of any claims made for the remediation of subsidence. As well as providing details of any preventative work that has been carried out to guard against future incidents.

The Coal Authority holds and maintains the national coal-mining database and provides a fast, accurate, property-specific and cost-effective coal mining search service for any property in England, Scotland and Wales.

The coal search is available for commercial and residential properties.
