Dull and boring article, posted for completeness
Property sales in the UK remained at a relatively low level in May and lower than the same month a year ago, new figures show. Some 68,000 homes were sold in May, down 2,000 on the revised total of a month earlier, according to HM Revenue and Customs data. The total was also 3,000 down on the same month a year ago. Lenders say there is little chance of a rebound in the coming months, judging by mortgage data.
