Source: Source: Financial Conduct Authority, HM Land Registry, Office for National Statistics
Sales volumes are shown monthly. Quarterly mortgage transactions are averaged resulting in a monthly value which is shown for the first month of each quarter.
Sales volumes do not equal the sum of the mortgage volumes. Sales volumes data include cash purchases and exclude remortgages. The Financial Conduct Authority also provide data on mortgages purchased by the council or by registered social landlord tenants exercising their right to buy, and purchased by those classified as “other” or “not known”. These groups are excluded from Figure 9.
