• How do I find out if a property is listed?

    Contact the local planning authority or visit http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk. The older a property is, the greater the likelihood that it is listed; every building in England dating from before 1700 that survives in anything like its original condition is listed, whereas a building that is less than 30 years old is unlikely to be listed at all.
