Are you trying to research the property or the people who might have lived in the property. During time period and in which location?

research property to find out who lived there

Your best bet then would be the electoral register. Unfortunately pre 2002 not many records are available online, exceptions being Birmingham (Upto 1955) and London (Upto 1960) which are available on Ancestry.

In most cases copies of old electoral registers will be available in the main public library that the ER covered.
