The most – and least – expensive houses sold in the three months to March this year have been revealed.

The data from HM Land Registry revealed where, and for how much Kent's priciest pads were.

It has also shown where the best bargains can be found in the county.

Average house prices across the UK increased by 8.6 per cent over the year to February 2021, up from 8.0% in January 2021 – the highest annual growth rate the UK has seen since October 2014, according to figures from the Office for National Statistics.

Between the beginning of 2016 and the end of 2019, there was a general slowdown in UK house price growth, driven mainly by a slowdown in the south and east of England.

According to the Land Registry, 44,049 home sales have been registered for January, 9,558 for February, and 1,353 for March.

It may take several weeks for sales to be registered after completion so some sales from later in the period may not be listed yet. The impact of coronavirus has meant that it is taking longer than for sales to be registered.

The Land Registry has also warned its services are likely to be disrupted due to the pandemic, particularly the process of registering a new sale, which likely means a longer delay between the house sale completing and the record being updated at the Land Registry.

Based on the data covering the period so far, across England and Wales, there were 1,624 £1m or more sales, including 306 at £2m or more.

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.

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.

You can find the full list of figures below.
