Do you want to know the price at which a house has been sold within the last two years?
e.g. Any house in your road.
e.g. Any house near to one you hope to buy.
e.g. How much a friend, relative or neighbour paid for their house.

Until now you could get this information from the Land Registry for £2 per property. The following website you can view up to 500 prices for free.

Is there any reason a house wouldnt show up there? I know someone brought a house know the postcode...the whole address in fact and nowts showing up?!

Oh my god, I'm really never going to get off this computer now. Only other diversion has been local property papers.

Charliecat - mine isn;t showing up and I'm fairly sure that we've bought this house

I think there is some problem with missing data which they are hoping to get sorted out soon.

Now why I looked at our house in the first place I do not know!!

gingerbear Sat 29-Jan-05 22:57:59

charliecat, not sure - was it in the last two years? If it was before then or in 2005, then perhaps it is not on this site.

Got the tip from btw, a v good site.

charliecat Sat 29-Jan-05 22:58:30

Ah well at least im not imagining it...thank SB!

must remember to bump this up for Hula tomorrow morning.

think it can take up to 3 months for a property to show on these as it can take the land registry that long

PS - one property I checked was sold beginning of November - so think it could vary

Gingerbear - YOU ARE FANTASTIC (yes I'm shouting) - we are thinking about moving and we're going to put an offer in on a house that we love. I just checked it out and the identical one next door sold in October 04 for 48 GRAND cheaper than the price we were going to offer. They are both new houses so I cannot see how the price would vary that much.

Thank you Gingerbear - you have changed my life.

I will no longer be using Mumsnet to distract me as I have a new friend now

gingerbear Sun 30-Jan-05 17:50:30

Dawnie - wow!!!!!!!!!! I think I love you too (don't tell DH).

Hula have you seen this yet? Is it too late?

Wow, that's incredible. I checked my last sale and purchase to make sure the info was correct and it was. thanks for that!

jampots Mon 31-Jan-05 12:49:46

neither of my sisters houses are on the database [confused]

Gobbledigook Thu 03-Feb-05 11:10:07

Brill site! Except the one house I'm interested in doesn't come up even though houses just a few doors down that sold at the same time do.

At first I thought maybe when you sold you could choose not to make that info available but then again, my house purchase from 2000 is on there and noone asked me!!
