Radon is an odourless gas which occurs naturally throughout the country, but at higher levels in some parts than others. Local searches carried out by Conveyancing Solicitors include information as to the level of radon in the locality, which can, in high-concentrations, cause lung cancer. In the past 30 years nearly half a million Radon measurements have been taken in England and Wales by the Health Protection Agency. The Leicester sample considered 6500 of the 102000 homes in the LE postcode district. The mean measurement found 96 Bq -3 with the highest recording being 3400 Bq -3.
Of the sample group 690 properties were considered over the Action Level. Extrapolated, this would mean that statistically 42249 properties will exceed the acceptable Radon level. It may be a wise precaution to book a £50 radon test, depending on the results of the searchEven where a residence is found to have high levels of radon, remedial measures can be taken to reduce any risk, costing approximately £1000.
