    How to find out date property purchased? 3rd Dec 17 at 1:19 PM
    Hi Folks

    I seemed to have misplaced my property deed. So, how do I find out the date on which I bought my property and became the legal owner?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    does your solicitor not hold the deeds, or whoever did your purchase transaction?

    Edit: check out when you first took out home insurance, signed up for electricity or gas.

    Yes, possibly.

    I thought there may be another way of finding out.

    Bank accounts, mortgage statements, diaries, Rightmove/other online repositories of previous sales, other people you knew at the time who have a better memory than you...or just download the details from the Land Registry.

    Or it your property is in Scotland, Registers of Scotland can trace and send you a copy of your deeds for a smallish fee. Cheaper to do it online, or you can go into their office in Edinburgh and get it there and then.

    As above: Free and takes about five seconds. It goes back to at least 1999.

    Have you tried a ouija board? As well as helping you to find out when you bought your house, these can often be a good way of finding out if someone was murdered in it.

    Of course if you're in Scotland you can take the last as read.
    The Lottery, with its weekly pay-out of enormous prizes, was the one public event to which the proles paid serious attention. It was probable that there were some millions of proles for whom the Lottery was the principal if not the only reason for remaining alive. -
