Radon is a colourless, odourless radioactive gas. It can be found everywhere in the UK and our Local Authority Searches confirm whether or not it is found in quantities that require some sort of action.
Unfortunately there is no statutory basis that requires Network Rail or its predecessors to respond to such enquiries. This is further confirmed in the Law Society Conveyancing Handbook which states that there is no official form of railway search. However we can always provide some sort of check on the position of the Railway for you.
