Mining - of coal, metal ores and other minerals - has been carried out across the country since the copper age of prehistory. Residential property may be affected by old underground workings, especially if there is still a risk of subsidence. Buyers' conveyancing solicitors carry out a standard form of search with the Coal Authority when a property is in an area where mining was known to have taken place or where coal is known to exist. A coal search will indicate whether any opencast workings have taken place or are planned in the vicinity. Although this may have less direct ongoing impact on property, the existence of large opencast workings in the vicinity can have an adverse effect while coal is being extracted. Should a search reveal former mining activity in close proximity then a further survey may be required. There is no single source of information about areas where other minerals were mined, but these workings mostly occur in areas where there is fortunately no significant housing.
There are approximately 17 areas in Powys where a mining search is required. These include; Penrhos, Cefn Byrle, Abercraf, Ynyswen, Glan-rhyd, Cwmgiedd and Pen-y-cae.
Disadvantaged areas relief may be available for property bought in around 2,000 locations across the country. Local government wards or electoral divisions are used to define the boundaries of these. For homes bought for less than £150,000, this relief may be available. If a search does not confirm whether am property is in a disadvantaged area, your solicitor should contact the local authority. That said, for any purchase below £150,000, it is worth making a simple postcode search to find out if a property is in a Disadvantaged area. For more information regarding Powys disadvantaged areas, or to determine if your prospective purchase qualifies, call us today.
Environmental factors affecting both property prices and the health and safety of homeowners continue to make headlines. Your solicitor will undertake an environmental search to uncover issues which may impact your decision to purchase a specific property. Be aware that an environmental search does not cover unreported contaminants, as it relies on data rather than an in-person survey of the land in question. If in time the local authority identifies a Property area as being contaminated they can issue remediation notices requiring action to clean up the contamination in the absence of voluntary agreement to do so. Your environmental search in Powys will be supported by a range of documentation which may be available in full.
