Homecheck Mining and Subsidence

Homecheck Mining and Subsidence report is designed to highlight any potential mining and subsidence hazards at a property. The presence of a hazard could mean that your property is at risk of structural damage from subsidence. The report covers a wide range of hazards from man-made to natural sources. Uniquely, the report provides information on real insurance claims from subsidence.

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 after it has been purchased may subsequently be difficult to insure and/or secure a mortgage against.
