Local Searches from 1947 & 1975

Posted: 25/11/2014

Have you ever wondered what a Local Search looked like more than 50 years ago? Whether the layout would be the same and how extensive the information would be compared to modern Local Searches? If so, you are in for a treat today!

My parents collected their deeds from storage a few weeks ago and after looking through the documents I stumbled across two Local Searches for the property. The first Local Search was dated back to 1947 when the land was purchased by the developer and the second was from 1975 when the house was sold to a local couple.  

I also came across a Local Search application, structural survey and mortgage documentation which were fascinating to read. I have scanned both of the Local Searches and an application which can be viewed by clicking the links below.

What do you think of these Local Searches compared to the reports which are completed today?
