Does anyone know how you acn find out if you're house is listed? We have had an offer on ours but the buyer is concerned that it might be grade 2 listed.



From English Heritage:

How do I consult the lists?

With great difficulty. Although the listings have been digitized, the general public can only consult scrappy photocopies of the original listings. You can ring the Listed Buildings Information Service on 020 7208 8221 who will fax you a copy of the listing for one particular building after a three day delay. Computerised searching is at present impossible, except for internal staff at English Heritage in Swindon. You can see lists covering your local area and obtain copies of individual entries at your local council planning department, County Council offices and most local reference libraries. The full English national list is kept by English Heritage at the National Monuments Record, Kemble Drive, Swindon SN2 2GZ. It is called the Greenbacks, because the scraps of paper are kept in about 300 greenbacked folders in a room in Swindon.
