UK House Price Index for December 2021

The UK HPI shows house price changes for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Since March 2020 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 more information.

The December data shows:

  • on average, house prices have risen 0.8% since November 2021
  • there has been an annual price rise of 10.8% which makes the average property in the UK valued at £274,712

England
