Groundsure Cheshire Salt

Groundsure is the sole provider of the Cheshire Salt Search report in partnership with the Cheshire Brine Subsidence Compensation Board. This report is a Law Society requirement on subsidence risk due to extensive brine extraction in this county.

The report provides information on current and previous brine mining practices, including the eligibility of a property for compensation in the event of any damage caused.

Where a Cheshire Salt Brine report has been instructed, a conveyancing solicitor will not need to instruct a CON29M report unless the property is located in the salt/coal overlap area, which applies only to approximately 259 postcodes.
