Buyers and developers are becoming increasingly concerned about the impact that underground rail tunnels could have on a property. Give them the certainty they need with a Groundsure Underground report.

Groundsure provide the fastest turnaround for this type of search, returning within one working day.

Why this report?

  • Same-day report

  • Insight on the location and depth of rail and tube lines

  • Historic disused and planned extension lines

The Underground Search identifies whether a property or development is within 1km of a tunnel network. It also provides estimated tube depth data – information which is exclusive to Groundsure and is unlikely to be identified in a standard conveyancing search.

Possible impacts from underground rail tunnels could include potential planning restrictions, subsidence, vibration and noise pollution.

What does it cover?

  • Proximity to the London Underground, DLR and active railways
  • Station details
  • Provides approximate depths of the London Underground tunnels as well as operational times
  • Railways projects including HS2, Crossrail 1 and future London Underground extensions
  • Details safeguarding areas and compensation zones around the HS2 route
  • Historical and abandoned railways and tunnels

What does 'Order in Progress' mean?

Order in progress is a status we assign when your report or data is being produced. You will receive your product within the defined turnaround time. If you order states “with Groundsure”, this is because you have submitted your order with a site plan and we are working on digitising your site boundary, or because the site drawn exceeds our standard pricing options. Orders will be placed within 24 hours, and a member of the team will be in contact if we require further information. If you order states “On Hold”, this is because one of our environmental consultants has raised a query with your order. This query will have been emailed to you.

How do I download a report?

All reports will be delivered by email to the designated email address. If necessary, you are also able to include an additional email address before placing your order. However, if the file is too big for email, a download link will be emailed to you. Alternatively, you can download any report from your Order History.

How do I cancel a report?

Cancelling an order ‘in progress’ can be dealt with via your Groundsure account. If the order you wish to cancel is already complete, please contact us and the team will advise you on our cancellation policy.
