Coal mining report

Post 17110 of 23788

Subsidence can be a major issue for homeowners, their lenders and insurers. Geoinvestigate’s property search service enables you to check if coal mining or brine pumping activity affects your property.

Coal mining searches are vital for anyone buying property in a coal mining area in Britain

You can check if a property is in a former coal mining area and order a mining report if it is.

Property near to past mining activities may be at risk of being on unstable ground (sometimes called ‘subsidence’).

Our Coal mining reports gives information on:

  • mine entries within 20 metres of a property’s boundaries
  • subsidence claims made about brine pumping from Cheshire salt mines
  • gas emissions from coal mines
  • other coal mining hazards reported in the area
  • plans for future coal mining in the area

Searches in England and Wales also include information about Cheshire brine subsidence claims.

A solicitor or conveyancer will usually do a coal mining search if you’re buying land or property in an affected area.
