  • It is not always easy to tell. If the house is newish 20-30 years you could look at the install date on the meters. Sometimes the land registry defines a house as newly built on its earliest sale. For flats you can look at when the lease was first granted, but this is the first sale rather than the actual build. Sometimes you can only estimate. For a guide as to how to make an educated guess read below.

  • Hi, The only way you will be able to get this information for sure is to get in contact with the Land Registry, from where you can get a copy of the title deeds for the house. This will cost you a small amount, but it is the only way to have a certain answer to this issue. Many thanks, Scott

  • Scott - The land registry records land not, generally what is built on the land, or when that happened. In some cases it can be clear (mainly new builds) but otherwise it is vague. Also It is only in the last 20-30 years that all land has become registered. Lots of a big proportion of land deals were unregistered back in the day sadly.
