Researching the history of a house can be fascinating, but it is not always straightforward, especially in London where the maze of sources is complex. Written by an expert on London's built environment, this book provides a systematic guide to the available archives, including title deeds, local government records, rates and taxes, fire insurance and probate. Extensively illustrated with photographs and maps, it includes a brief history of London housing, and three case studies.
