Buying property within mine subsidence districts

If you are thinking about buying a house or structure in a mine subsidence district (district), it’s important to check whether it is eligible for compensation and if claims for subsidence damage are pending or have been paid in the past. These enquiries are generally made in the normal course of conveyancing.

If a property is within a district, this is shown on a Section 149 Certificate, which must be attached to a Contract of Sale when a property is put on the market.
