Mags Czajkowski makes an offer of 'around £90,000' for Number 31 in November 1987, with the intention of moving to Walford permanently and living there with Wicksy. The property was being sold by Newton & Ash Estate Agents. It was part of several storylines at the time exemplifying yuppies moving to Walford and displacing the original working class locals who could no longer afford the area they grew up in.

In 1997 vicar Alex Healy lived in the house while he was working in the local church. After he left town for missionary work abroad, the house was bought by Phil Mitchell, who rented it out to Alex's father Jeff and sister Melanie Owen. The property then lay empty until Phil and Peggy Mitchell moved there from the Vic.

The property was then inhabited by Phil, girlfriend Kate and sister Sam Mitchell. Phil's baby Louise and her nanny Joanne Ryan also share the Mitchell home. Peggy was so disgusted by Phil's decision to take Kate back that she's decided to stay out in Rio with Grant.

Sam Mitchell lived here with her husband Andy Hunter for a few months. She convinced him to buy the place to raise funds for Phil. When Andy discovered that Sam had been conned by Marcus Christie, he threw her out.

When Andy died, Pat Evans was then surprised to find out that she'd been left the house in Andy's will. Billy Mitchell and his lady love Honey Edwards lived here as lodgers, but moved to the Vic when Honey got pregnant. However, Pat was still left with a full house, as Dean, Kevin and Carly Wicks were fully settled in by then, having arrived in the new year.

Later Pat remained at this address with Carol, Bianca, Ricky, Liam, Morgan, Tiffany and Whitney Dean lived there. After Pat died Ricky and Bianca split up and Bianca Butcher formed a new relationship with Terry Spraggan. Terry moved in temporarily with his kids Terry Spraggan Jnr and Rosie Spraggan. Bianca and Terry soon realised the house was not big enough for everyone and eventual moved out of Walford.

Carol and grandson Liam did not go with Bianca and stayed living at number 31, in 2015 Sonia Jackson Carol's daughter also moved in. Later in 2015, both Liam and Carol left Walford. In 2015 Sonia invited Tina Carter to live with her, Tina's Mother Sylvie Smith moved in also. Sonia split up with Tina in September 2016 and decided to take up a job offer in Kettering. Tina Carter then occupied the house with her Mother. Rebecca Fowler, Sonia's daughter left the house to live with her father also living in Albert Square (No 3C). Tina offered Stacey Fowler the remaining lease on the house while Tina and her mother moved in with Shirley Carter at her place (23B Albert Square) .

Soon after the Stacey, Martin, Belinda, Kyle, Bex, Lily and f move in, Belinda goes of travelling and then Kyle moves abroad, leaving Stacey and Martin living in the house with their three kids Bex, Lily and Arthur.In late December 2016, Martin's sister Michelle Fowler moved in after she returned from Florida however shortly after moves into best friend Sharon Mitchell's house (55 Victoria Road) . In August 2017 Whitney Dean (now Carter) returns to the House alongside her fiance Woody Woodward. Whitney and Woody break up in September 2017 and Woody leaves Walford. In October 2017 Martin and Stacey's newborn daughter Hope Fowler is born and moves in the house. Following Stacey’s affair with Max Branning on Christmas Eve 2017, Martin throughs Stacey out. After a few weeks Stacey manages to change the locks and kicks Martin out. Martin then moves into 25 with ex wife Sonia Fowler. In January 2018 Tiffany Butcher returns to the house and moves in. In March 2018, Big Mo Harris returns and informs Stacey that Kat Moon is dead. After the square rally around to gather the funds for her funeral, Mo reveals to Stacey that Kat is not dead. Stacey’s mum Jean Slater also returns earlier that day temporarily (However she later stays), Kat returns also unexpectadly that night shocking her family and the residents of Albert Sqaure.
