Property History Research

Our property history search offers estate agents and landlords a valuable tool in marketing opportunities. The promotion of commercial and residential properties, developments and land purchases can be enhanced by a history search on the property or local area.

Bespoke and Unique

Our highly bespoke service highlights unique details of an individual property or area. Every building is different, every house has a story, and every area has a particular history. By combining original architectural detail with historical information our history searches provide a beneficial facility for all residential and corporate property marketing.

House Histories

Discovering Heritage can conduct a house history on your home. We have written a blog post detailing the processes and some of the resources we use to produce our House History packs. We can research not only your house but also the people who lived in it. Our researchers and graphic designer/interpreter work together to present our finished work in a special House History Pack. An example of the type of information that we can uncover during our House History research can be found on our profile page.
