Helping you keep track
A raft of housing statistics were released today from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, the Council of Mortgage Lenders, and the Department of Communities and Local Government. The squeeze on mortgages was confirmed by data from mortgage lenders, while an industry survey showed that the number of sales hit a 30-year low. UK house prices in September were 5.1% lower than a year ago according to official government figures, making the average UK house price £208,583.
