Yes, our 2-bed flat is in a block of flats, the other local properties are either houses or council flats which they seem to treat differently. The only way is to compare with similar bits of the area slightly further away, or compare on square footage despite the different shape, or to look what was going on in the area in 1991 based on the local newspaper which you should be able to examine in the library and generally has an estate agent adverts section. Depends - are there similar properties a couple of streets away maybe?
