The Ground Report is a risk and liabilities report designed to enable property professionals to better identify, manage and resolve ground and environmental hazards. The Ground Report satisfies recent new best practice guidance on mining and natural ground perils, published by The Law Society. Using the unique UserKey, the Ground Report translates the risk from all mining activity, subsidence, sinkholes, radon, fracking, mineral planning activity and many more ground perils to enable property purchasers and property professionals alike to better understand the ground. Additionally, the Ground Report includes an integrated official Terrafirma CON29M (2018).
***Updates for October 2019 include***
- Improved clay-subsidence risk assessment, including future climate change scenarios.
- The addition of a comprehensive clay subsidence module, using advanced modelling to portray zones of influence from nearby trees.
- Terrafirma’s unique sinkhole alert forms part of the first page location map, providing up-front information on recorded collapses near to the property.
- A revised Natural Ground Perils module which identifies the likely risks from slope movement as well as any mapped landslide areas which may affect the property
