UK House Price Index For September 2021
18th November 2021
From the Land Registry office. The UK HPI shows house price changes for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
In the past 18 months all those involved in the property market have been impacted by the effects of coronavirus (COVID-19); HM Land Registry is no different and as a result, this release of the UK House Price index is not as complete as it could be.
The data is accurate. However, this release may be subject to increased revisions as we add more data over the coming months. See Reducing delays for further information.
The September data shows:
on average, house prices have increased 2.5% since August 2021
there has been an annual price rise of 11.8% which makes the average property in the UK valued at £269,945.

The UK HPI is based on completed housing transactions. Typically, a house purchase can take 6 to 8 weeks to reach completion. The price data feeding into the September 2021 UK HPI will mainly reflect those agreements that occurred after the government measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 took hold.
