Ok, buying a house and have a concern.
The solicitor noticed (while i was on the phone complaining about something else they were being useless at) that they have a report stating there is a mine entrance near the house we are trying to buy. Apparently its directly under the house 2 doors down and it 'needs another report' (i.e. they want more money!). Also mentioned they would be informing the lender as it might be an issue.
Any suggestions on what this might mean for us? anyone been through the same (mines i mean, not incompetent lazy solicitors).
Had a dig around as I knew the area had been subject to mining in the past and it suggests mining in that location ceased early 1900's, which ties in since these houses have been here since late 20's. Other mining in the area did carry on till 50's i think tho, so maybe still a concern?
