  • Hi Yvonne, I answer this question on Zoopla all the time, so I went a head and made a blog post detailing how you can find out the information you require! I'll pop my explaination below - Also don't hesitate to get in contact if you want any more help. To tell the age of a property, it’s a really good idea to start with the deeds of the house. Have a look at those and you will see land transfers will take place and then eventually you will see a house being built and a property being numbered normally. This is generally around the time the property was constructed. It’s not a sure fire way though, of course, because some properties were not registered until later in their life. So an old property could only be showing on deeds for the first time, one, two three hundred years after it was built. So don’t rely on it absolutely. Another way to do this is to speak to the surveyor who looked at the property when you bought it, or dig out the old survey report and generally they’ll have an approximate age of the property in. You can also speak to local estate agents and property experts as well and they should be able to give you a date, based on the design of the house any interior features such as fireplaces, cornicing, doors even. They all give clues as to the age of the property. Regards, Jonathan Rolande :-)
