The latest Price Paid Data from the HM Land Registry was released today looking at the number of sales transactions in the property market across England and Wales during September 2018.

The latest data shows that in September there were 96,355 property transactions a fall of nearly three and a half thousand on the previous month, and lower than the same month last year.

With property sales taking a while to reach completion, the fall could be attributed to the slower summer months, where a reduction in both buyer and seller activity has finally filtered through to the end point of the sale process.

However, of those property sales that did transact, there was an increase in the number of new builds, up 25%, as well as a 1.3% in the number of leasehold sales.

Despite current market conditions impacting the top end of the market the most, the Land Registry still recorded 450 sales across England and Wales for over £1m in their September Price Paid Data. 251 of these were located in London with the most expensive sale in September located in Kensington and Chelsea, where a terraced house sold for £14m.

In contrast, the cheapest property sale was in Hyndburn where another terraced house sold for £18,000.
