Coal search

This is a search that's often required in areas where coal mining used to take place. It can also tell you if there's any current mining activity or any plan for coal mining in the future which is likely to affect your property.

It uses information from the Coal Authority and is now often combined with a 'Brine Search'.

If you are buying or selling in an area with a history of coal mining then your In-Deed lawyer will arrange for a Coal Search. The cost of this search is covered by the In-Deed Price Promise.
