There are several documents that will have the year of your home’s construction printed on it.  If you own the house, the year should be written on the deed.  Knowing the age of a house can tell you a lot about its history.  Everyone has wondered at one point who lived there before and what were they like.  The first step to finding that out is to find out just how far back your house goes.

If you live in the US, you can go to your local courthouse, failing that, try the county’s courthouse.  They should have a registry of the deed.

If you live in the UK then you can phone your local council.  Like the courthouses in America, the council will have records of the deeds to all of the properties.

If you are renting your home, your landlord will be able to tell you.  If your landlord is unsure, tell them to see steps 1 and 2.  Although you can still find out the year your house was built without asking your landlord.

If that avenue fails then you could write to your local government office.  They will likely defer you to the council though.

There are websites for land registry for the UK.  Here is the link: www.landsearch.net

If you’re looking for your home’s history then knowing where that history starts is a good place to begin.  Following that you can check birth and death records and old newspapers.  It’s not quite genealogy, but it’s an interesting thing to know.  Knowing just how old your house is could help explain those creaky old floorboards and old brickwork around the fireplace.

Some might know one's house's age through the house style, woods and materials. Or you might ask your local neighbors about it.

Yes you can find the year of construction of the house through your local development authorities. You ought to have the map of the house and the construction plan. The year is always mentioned in those details.

A rule of thumb is to check the underside of the toilet tank cover. This is only helpful if the toilet is original to the home and hasn't been replaced. There should be a date stamp on the cover. This usually gives one an idea (within a year or two) of the age of the home.
