[Q&A]: How to find past history records of home or property one is planning to purchase?

Buying a Home: The Missing ManualKnowing the past history records of the home or property one is planning to purchase is utmost crucial in more than one ways as no one would like to invest his/ her hard earned money and efforts in a real estate property that has scrupulous records and bad history.

One of the many simple and non-official ways to find out if the property one is pursuing/ planning to purchase is a clean one is to check with the local property agents / brokers as well as the near & far neighbors. In case any unwanted history is there about the property in question, these people could be the best source of information to find out as they are local contacts and stay in the very same place.

There should not be any untoward record history of the property and/or the inhabitants of this property in the recent or entire past.

Last but not the least, check the credentials of the previous owners / builders / property developers who are/ were connected with the property in whichever way by means of word of mouth, police records, internet data inputs, and the likes. Their history and antecedents may help in confirming / quashing your untoward fears/ doubts about the property you are planning to purchase (or even to rent-in in that matter of sense).
