If you live or work near Truro in one of Cornwall’s Mining areas then you will no doubt be aware of the mining history as well as the ongoing and proposed extraction of further metalliferous elements, minerals and china clay. We have therefore found that as part of proposed development planning as well as land and property acquisitions, mining searches are regularly recommending further investigations such as “Mining Risk Assessments” and “Visual Inspection (Mining & Ground Stability) Reports” both of which we offer in a unique reporting format that has always been accepted by Legal Advisers, lenders and insurers; unlike some other companies offering these we inspect within buildings as well as the external elevations, outbuildings and gardens/surrounding land; without an internal inspection it is likely that a second visit will be required to enable the person undertaking the inspection to understand the structural significance of any cracks in the external elevations. These inspections will only be carried out by a Chartered Building Surveyor or Structural Engineer who has a strong understanding of not only mining related defects, but building construction and common defects therefore minimising the potential need for a further visual inspection. Find out more information on our Mining page.
