How can you find out when your house was built?

If you’re looking to find out when your house was built in the UK, according to Springbok Properties there are several ways to go about it:

  1. Check the deeds: The deeds to your property may contain information about when the house was built. You can obtain a copy of your deeds from the Land Registry.
  2. Look for a plaque or stone: Some older properties may have a plaque or stone with the date of construction on the exterior of the building.
  3. Consult historical maps: If you know the approximate age of your property, you can consult historical maps to try to narrow down the date of construction. Maps can be found at local archives or online resources.
  4. Ask the local council: The local council may have information on file about the construction of your property. You can contact the local planning department to request this information.
  5. Hire a property historian: If you want more detailed information about the history of your property, you can hire a property historian who specializes in researching the history of buildings. They can help you find out when your house was built and provide you with information on its history and previous owners.

By using one or more of these methods, you should be able to find out when and what year your house was built in the UK.

Best Wishes, Susan
