The No Search Certificate is a formal document designed to give peace of mind to property purchasers and mortgage lenders that a non-residential property is not within an area affected by known past, present or proposed future coal mine workings.
Industry leading Geographical Information System (GIS) is used to help you understand the level of known and suspected risk associated with the coal mining industry of Britain. This database was created using over 360,000 original abandonment plans, dating as far back as the 1700s.
Why you need it
With the coalfield covering 11% of Britain, and with a proportion of the coal mining activity being unrecorded, it’s important to safeguard customers against any potential hidden risks impacting their property.
Each certificate will include the following:
confirmation of being unaffected by any known coal mining activity
confirmation of being unaffected by any known mine entries
provides peace of mind for both home buyers and mortgage lenders
