  • Hi There. Unfortunately there is no list for this as such. Local knowledge is your first point of call. Ask an Estate Agent, one with good local knowledge and they should know straight away. There are also many build elements which give away an idea of build date, such as the brick layout on older properties, or perhaps the roof materials and windows if they are original! If you have a photograph I am happy for you to email it to me at and I will have a go for you! Good luck

  • What road are you in? Hampton as you probably know is not a very historic area in terms of housing - most of it was nursery lands but there is a good stock of Victorian houses dating from the 1870s related to the arrival of the railways. There was then infil in various later periods. The older houses are often marked on old period maps! Post your road and we'll see what we can do

  • Go to and go to home insurance and fill in the details like your name and the house number and post code. It will give you the year of built. BUT, some people have raised concerns that it may not be very accurate.

  • Hi, I see this question so many times! If you have lost the deeds to your property you should inquire with the land registry to get a new copy of them. You can also check with the solicitor you used when buying the property, they may have kept a copy. Good luck, Jonathan :-)

  • Hello, There are some really key things that you can look out for, so maybe look at your skirting boards, look at your architrave around your doors, your cornicing, your windows, your roof, your chimneys and even the design of your property. A lot of properties were built before World War One and then after World War Two. There were very few properties that were built in between. If you still struggle to find out when your property was built, maybe speak to a local surveyor or even ask a local agent who may be able to give you the answer that you’re looking for.
