Housing: Valuation

Volume 685: debated on Tuesday 10 October 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many, or what percentage of, houses in the United Kingdom are currently valued at over £285,000.[HL7354]

There is no register of dwelling valuations for the United Kingdom. The most up-to-date information about the values of dwellings comes from sales data. According to information from the Land Registry, in 2005, the latest full year for which figures are available, 13.2 per cent of dwellings on the open market in England and Wales sold at over £285,000.
