Land Registry property data for December 2020

I’ve uploaded the latest property data for England and Wales to my website. I’ve also made some changes to the charts so they hopefully give a clearer picture of trends in sales and prices. I think the most striking thing I see is that the number of sales over the last year have dropped to levels last seen in the days after the global financial crash. But unlike those days, this hasn’t had the same effect on prices which have continued to rise. I guess that’s down to the removal of stamp duty, so it will be interesting to see what happens when that ends.
