Release:UK House Price Index: April 2020
The ONS and the joint producers have taken the decision to temporarily suspend the UK House Price Index (HPI) publication from the April 2020 index (due to be released 17 June 2020) until further notice. The impact of the coronavirus has greatly reduced the number of housing transactions that took place in April 2020, making it very difficult to produce a measure of UK house prices that is representative of the housing market. We continue to closely monitor the flow of transaction data and intend to reinstate the UK HPI as early as is practicable. We will include an update on the monthly calendar entry for HPI to ensure that users are kept informed of the plan for reinstatement.
