Our databases have been created using the most up to date information available from the Land Registry and is extracted from the house price sales data recorded since 1995 and from our own research. Whilst some streets may be not yet be updated to the database, this number is minimal and we endeavour to update any missing records as quickly as possible following information received. Outer postcodes, Town/City & County data is provided by lookups bespoke built into our systems from information available on wikipedia.

Postcode county lookup (source: wikipedia)
This useful image includes all UK postcode areas by letter – ie AB is Aberdeenshire, WF is West Yorkshire etc. It contains 121 marked Counties by the postcode letter prefix, although there may be instances where a letter spans more than 1 County. These are minimal and this image should only be used as a guide. Our bespoke systems use the entire outer postcode (ie KT16) to validate the Town/City and County.
