Can I have some more info please?

Is it registered at HM Land Registry? Is it newish or old. Approximately what year was it built? Do you need to know the exact year? Why? Is it for insurance purposes?

What deeds to do you have?

Thanks JL

I can only presume it is registered at HM Land Registry.
It is Early Victorian, around 1850. Other properties around our area are dated at 1845 etc.
As I am renovating the house, I want to know its exact age and I am interested in the history of the house and area.
Solicitor: Stuart J, Solicitor replied 7 years ago

What deeds do you have?

Why is the exact age relevant to renovation? Is it listed?

Do the 1845 houses have dates on them? Do they look like yours?

 

Thanks

I will have to get back to you on what deeds I have as I am at work at the moment.
I just want to know the exact age of my property as it is of interest to me and I want to know all about the history of my house.
It is not listed but it is within a Conservation area.
There is an old pub on the corner of Chapel Street called The Gardners Arms and its part of the Heritage Walk in Berkhamsted. It has a plaque saying built 1845.
Solicitor: Stuart J, Solicitor replied 7 years ago

if it is registered at HM Land Registry get the offical copies of title plan and register. It may refer to other docs which the land reg hold.

 

The Ordnance Survey have old maps which may show the area years ago. They go back in stages. Some very early maps are much less detailed.

 

There is no definitive answer to your question I am afraid, it is simply a case of researching as much as you can. That is why you havent found one.

 

Find out where your Local Records Office is and pay a visit. You will usually have to make an appointment and allow several hours if not days to find what you are looking for. the archvist will usually be very helpful! It is fascinating stuff and very absorbing but they will often only let you have access to one doc at a time. They will take copies for you for which they charge.

 

We had the same pproblem looking for mine records up here in N Wales. The rcords office had everything we wanted.

 

Enjoy.

 

If it helps, please accept so that I get credit. Thanks

 

JL
