Radon is a standard question in the conveyancing process. It is on the CON29 form and appears as section 3.14 of environmental searches. The standard wording will be similar to:

'records indicate that the property is located within 25 metres from the centre of a search in a radon affected area.'


'records indicate that the property is in a 'Radon Affected Area' as identified by UK Health Security Agency.'

What does this mean?

The wording can sometimes be ambiguous: The important question is: Is this property in a radon affected area? You can look up the area your building is in by checking the interactive map
