  • Hi Tarah - as far as I know, this information is not available in the public domain. However, you may be able to the year your house was built 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, check the "Property Information Form" or survey completed during the last sales process. Your local council may be able to let you know when planning was granted and you could talk to the local library/history society who should be able to check census data dating back to the 19th century.

  • Hi Tarah, 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 :-)

  • We've recently updated some pointers on 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 the 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 the house is on the National Heritage List for England or NHLE; - Explore historical Ordnance Survey maps; - Observe the architectural style and features of the property, 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 an idea of the age. Thanks, Ruban
