The professional opinion on residential risk for coal mining activity

You no longer need to buy the Mine Entry Report as a separate report. A mine
entry interpretive assessment is now included in the CON29M report, where
required, as standard for no extra charge.*

The Groundsure CON29M Official Coal Mining Search – Residential brought to you by
Groundsure under Law Society licence using official Coal Authority data.

The residential report answers all of the official 11 questions requested in Law Society
Guidance Notes (2018) and has additional information should the property fall within
the Cheshire Brine Compensation area. The report offers extra peace of mind,
protection and security via a comprehensive £100k Coal Search Report Insurance

What is the CON29M?

The CON29M is a legal form set out by the Law Society to
provide information on past, present and future underground and surface coal mining
activity for individual properties or sites in England and Wales. It is requested by
solicitors on behalf of their clients as part of the conveyancing searches purchased in a
coal mining or past coal mining area.

*Mine entry interpretive assessment

The content of the Groundsure interpretive Mine Entry Report is fully incorporated into
the Groundsure CON29M Official Coal Mining Search (both the Residential and
Commercial versions) for no extra charge, as standard.
Previously, where mine entries were identified the CON29M would recommend they be
investigated further through an additional interpretive report. From the 16th March the
valuable additional content and risk assessment provided in that follow-up search will be
embedded into the standard CON29M.

Key benefits
● No need to delay the transaction for a follow-up report
● A calculated zone of influence (ZOI) for each mine entry (the physical extent to
which they could pose a risk) included as standard
● This ZOI data is built into the report intelligence, risk calculation intelligence and
recommendations of the report
● The assessment goes above and beyond official Law Society CON29M guidance
and will flag a risk whenever a mine entry ZOI encroaches on a property - even
when there is no mine entry within 20m
● Helpful next steps included for all potential mine entry scenarios
● Where appropriate connecting underground roadways are included
● Guidance on next steps in the event of subsidence damage
● The design and format remains largely unchanged

Coal reporting in Scotland

In Scotland this is a ‘Regulated’ search rather than ‘Official’. This is because the Law
Society (of England and Wales) and their CON29M form and Guidance Notes do not
apply in Scotland. If the property is located in Scotland you will still be able to order the
CON29M product (for either Residential or Commercial transactions) and the
Groundsure team will generate the appropriate version for Scottish transactions.
The same 11 questions are answered in the Scottish version and the product is identical
in terms of the in-depth information included. Key differences:
The Scottish version will not have the question text and numbered format (as licensed
and requested by the Law Society)
The Cheshire brine alert is removed for Scotland.

** Reliance: £10m Professional Indemnity Insurance. Can be relied upon by all
professional parties within a property transaction, first purchasers / tenants and their
advisers. Please refer to Groundsure terms and conditions.
