Groundsure Ground Stability Report

The Groundsure Ground Stability Report is designed to provide a cost-effective screen on the potential for ground instability, identifying the likelihood of subsidence risk and providing early warning due to natural hazards or previous mineral extraction in the vicinity.

Subsidence is a silent and often ignored risk when it comes to purchasing a property, but for those affected it can be a costly error. In addition to the physical risk, a property affected by subsidence at a point after purchase may subsequently be difficult to insure and / or secure a mortgage against.

Why is this important?

The report looks at various factors including ground working and infilled land, mining and extraction, natural hazards, landfills and geology.

This gives potential buyers peace of mind that all causes of potential ground instability have been considered.

It provides an assessment of each factor, rating the property as “Passed” or “In Need of Further Assessment” on the summary page. A greater level of detail is provided on each factor inside the report, along with aerial photography and ground working maps.

You can clearly see if there are any issues that you should pay particular attention to. GroundSure provides a free dedicated helpdesk for clients to discuss all “In Need of Further Assessment” reports with the consultant who assessed the property.
