  • Hi Eddie, there are a couple of surveyors on here that will hopefully come back to you but, in the mean time: - 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; - 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.

  • Since updated the list of tips to this question: - Get a copy of the Title Register (see the link below); - See if there is a date on the Seller's Property Information Form or SPIF (which you should have received when your property was being sold); - Search 2,000 properties recorded in the 1862 Act register; - Check your local archives - such as parish records, county record offices or your local library; - Contact your local planning office at the council (note there might be a delay here); - Look at Census to find a first mention of the address (published every 10 years); - See if your house is listed in Historic England's National Heritage List for England; - Explore historical Ordnance Survey maps; - Observe the architectural style and features of the house, such as the type of roof and position of windows. You can then Google search these features and get an idea of the age of the property; - Contact your local history society or find an amateur historian who can help; - Find a local surveying firm who may be able to provide you with a valuation. Thanks, Ruban
