Checking the history of a property

You can check the history of any property with a recent EPC. The sales history is also included for all transactions recorded since 1995.

Property sales which took place before 1995 will not show when using this service. You could attempt to contact HM Land Registry directly if you wish to find pre-1995 sales, however compulsory registration wasn’t completed until 1990, and the price paid only started being recorded in 1995.

Frequently Asked Questions

What information is included in a property history check?

Our property history check service allows you to see the sales history, EPC history and lease details of a property just using the postcode.

Properties which haven’t had any sales post 1995 and which haven’t had an EPC will not appear in the search results. You would need to search archives or contact HM Land Registry directly for further information on these properties.

What is a standard price paid transaction?

Property sales are either recorded as a ‘standard’ or ‘additional’ transaction. A standard transaction indicates that the property was sold to a private individual, i.e. a standard sale.

Some transactions aren’t included in these records, for example where a part share is sold, or in the case of right-to-buy sales.

What is an additional price paid transaction?

Property transactions recorded in the additional category indicates non-standard transactions, for example repossessions, non-private sales or other types of transaction (e.g. buying the freehold on a leasehold property).

Additional price paid transactions aren’t taken into account when we calculate the estimated current value of a property.
