What are they?
A Mining Investigation is an intrusive on-site assessment of the ground beneath the property. We drill boreholes or dig trenches to confirm the ground conditions and map out any mining features.
What does it tell me?
A Mining Investigation is designed to give the ultimate answer on mining subsidence risk. If no problems are found our report will provide very high assurances for the property, allowing your mortgage/transaction to proceed. If a mining threat is confirmed, our report will explain the risk and advise on a way forward to resolve the problem.
How much?

Standard fees start from £585 (excluding VAT) for excavation; and £1,485 (excluding VAT) for drilling.

A typical residential property will require two days drilling at £2,780 (excluding VAT). [Fees are dependant on location and size of property.]
