Do You Really Know What’s Below Your Property? - Rachael Hodge, Terrafirma

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.
