After 17years we have recently put our house on the market

Customer Question

After 17years we have recently put our house on the market its an ex local authority wimpey no fines,mortgage with hsbc for the whole duration, first and only lender we approached as they were attached to paper work sent to us by the council as all legal fee's would be paid and having a young family at the time this went a long way. so went ahead we were informed that there were two mine shafts within close vicinity but were never advised not to buy and that our house would devalue from £112500 now to possible 20% less to £90000, we rang the coal board as the reports they have sent back state unknown if capped they say they have no record which is why this is stated i have read online that the real case is that information got lost and inaccuracy of the actual map plotting of the actual mines plays a huge part in unknown.If they were stated as capped i would get 100% market value,i have emailed the coal authority asking them if they can look into this further for me.

They have passed this onto the relavent dept so waiting on reply. What if anything could i legally ask to be done by the coal authority to reasure possible home buyers as at the minute i am loosing home buyers daily due to the disclosure of the mines to them at point of interest due to information being lost from the report i also find it odd that the mine furthest away from my home posses the most risk?
