The number of sinkholes collapsing have increased by 250% since 2008 due to old chalk mining workings. Over two million properties in the UK are in danger. Areas at risk include large parts of the south of England: the North Downs in Surrey, Sussex, Kent and Greater London and the areas around Reading, Greenwich, Dartford, St Albans, Hatfield, Hemel Hempstead and Norwich.To ensure clients purchasing in this area are not put at risk, order the following report:

Coal Mining
Mainly required in the North and North East of England, the Midlands and South Wales, but our system will let you know when a search ought to be requested. Depending on the search purchased, reports cover past, present and proposed underground and opencast mining, shafts and adits (or other entries to underground coal mine workings), faults or lines of weakness and subsidence.
