  • Hi Steven, The best way to find out how old the property is, is to first and foremost contact the developer who built it in the first place, if you are able to trace who this is, as obviously they will have records of when homes were constructed. There are a number of different ways to work out the time a house was built, however, if this first method does not help you. If the developer route proves to be fruitless, your next stop should be the Land Registry. The organisation has details of the first time land ownership was transferred. What this means is that if the developer of the property was also the first one to sell it, the Land Registry will be able to tell you when. Obviously this will give you a reasonably accurate reading as to when the home was actually built. From there, if you still have no luck, you should look to get in touch with the local council. The planning department there should be able to provide details of when the land there first was granted permission to be built on, which should help you to learn approximately when the home was built. And if this again leaves you out of luck, you can talk to the agent and the surveyor who were involved in the purchase of your home, as they should be able to provide you with details of the time the property was erected from their surveys. Many thanks, Scott
