[Readers' Query]: How to know the past history of purchased home/ property?


Another interesting question answered on "Y! Answers" By 'Team B-n-M':
"How do I find information on past history of our recently purchased home and property, if something bad may have happened?

I have this odd feeling when I'm outside. When I go into the house I'm fine. The house was moved on the property about 5 years ago, a year before we bought it"


'Team B-n-M' answers:


  • One of the ways to find out if the property is a clean one is to check with the local property agents / brokers as well as the neighboring houses. In case any unwanted history is there, these people could be the best source to find out as they are local contacts and stay in same place.
  • The other source could be the nearest police station. There should not be any untoward record history of the property.
  • Last but not the least, check upon the credentials of the previous owners / builders / property developers who are connected with the property in whichever way. Their history and antecedents may help in confirming / quashing your untoward fears / doubts about the property.
