<h4>Do You Really Know What&rsquo;s Below Your Property?&nbsp; - Rachael Hodge, Terrafirma</h4>
<p><img style="float: right; margin: 10px 40px;" src="" alt="" width="140" height="44" /></p>
<p>An often misunderstood and overlooked environmental risk, ground hazards, be it natural or man-made (i.e. mineral extraction) can pose a variety of risks to ground stability. This can severely affect property and land through damage, loss of quiet enjoyment and loss of value and thus impacts all parties within a property/land transaction. With a recent increase in the volume and visibility of mining-related sinkholes and resultant growing industry/public media interest, the risks can no longer be avoided.</p>
<p>Learn when, where and how mining and ground risk assessment should be used and learn more about the hidden legacy of UK mineral extraction and how interpretation of data is essential in both understanding and acting upon the potential risks the ground poses.</p>
