  • Hi lfitzsimmons, This is a tricky one to get an exact answer for, but there are a number of different ways to find out an approximate date if you cannot find out precisely when the house was built. Primarily, though, you should look to contact the developer who built the property if you know who they are. They should keep details of when the property was constructed. If you have no luck here, then your next stop will be the Land Registry. While they are only able to give you information about the land itself and not specifically the properties, it can be useful in many cases. For example, if the house was first sold by the developer that built it, the Land Registry can give you info on when the ownership was transferred, and this will give you an approximate date for when the home was constructed. If you have no luck there, then your next port of call will be the local council, where you can find out when the land your home is built on was first granted planning permission. This should give you, again, an approximate date for when your home was first built. Then, if you own your own home, you could try contacting the surveyor who carried out the survey before you obtained a mortgage or the estate agent who sold you it, as there is always a chance that either of these two will have it noted down on their documents from when they were working with you. Many thanks, Scott
