Want to find out how old your house is or when it was built? There are many ways to find the age of your property.
One easy way is to look at the architecture of the house. Look for indicators such as:
- Style of the doors
- Architraves around the doors
- Windows and roof
- Type of construction
Check with the solicitor you used when buying the property, they may have kept a copy.
If you have a mortgage, your survey may say how old the building is.
Your local authority may have further details about when planning permission was granted.
Ask neighbours in the same sort of properties if they know the age of their house.
Check the property deeds for further information about when the house was constructed.
If you have lost the deeds to your property you should inquire with the land registry to get a new copy of them.
You could also look on old-maps.co.uk which can give you a rough indicator or when your house might have been constructed, it is an archive of old maps and you may be able to see when your house first appears on this.
Hope this info helps!
