  • Hi Andy - You may be able to find this information on your Title Deed (using the date of the first transfer or lease by the original builder) or the Land Registry digital archives. Failing that; - A local surveyor may be able to inform you; - Check the "Property Information Form" during the last sales process; - Your local council may be able to let you know when planning was initially granted; or - Talk to the local library/history society who should be able to check census data dating back to the 19th century.

  • Hi, 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. Good luck, Jonathan :-)
