Terrafirma Con29M Non-coal mining risks assessed – 18th October


Have you ever wondered what the ‘M’ in ‘CON29M’ stands for? If you said mining, you’d be right. However, you’d be forgiven for being confused as until recently, the CON29M report has only covered mining assessment from a single mineral – coal. Terrafirma is introducing an exciting update to its official CON29M report by adding a new section. Going LIVE on the 18th October, the Terrafirma CON29M will assess and advise on the risk to property from coal and non-coal mining hazards within Coal Authority data.

Other important updates are being made to the Terrafirma Ground Report, including an enhanced natural ground perils module, and improved layout design. Find out more here.

Join Terrafirma on the 19th October to learn more at the Autumn Updates Launch Event. Geologist Tim Longden will provide an overview of recently announced updates to Terrafirma’s ground risk reports, and why they are important. This event is open to all conveyancers and property professionals. You can register for free, and ask questions live after the short 30-minute session. In line with Terrafirma’s climate policy, a tree will be planted for everyone that registers, and another for everyone that attends. Click here to register.
