The Land Registry lists the price paid for every property bought at market value. The data also includes sales under a power of sale/repossessions, buy-to-lets (where they can be identified by a Mortgage) and transfers to non-private individuals.
It may take several weeks for sales to be registered after completion so some sales from later in May may not be listed yet.
As the data relies on buyers or their solicitors registering the sale and the price paid with the Land Registry, mistakes in listings may happen. They are usually corrected at a later date.
Issues can include figures with too many digits or shared ownership prices paid for a part share listed as the whole price.
