The HM Land Registry’s Price Paid Data (PPD) provides details of all property sales in England and Wales that are sold for value and are lodged with HM Land Registry as Open Data. It is updated monthly and data is available from 1995.
The data can be accessed and searched interactively via a highly flexible web-based user interface (see screenshot below) and then downloaded if desired, or can be accessed directly programmatically via an API (Application Programming Interface). The latter is widely used and then re-used by organisation and companies such as estate agents, house buying websites, financial organisations including, HM Treasury, the Bank of England, as well as a raft of other Government departments.
In addition users can create customised aggregated data analysis of the Price Paid Data as ‘Standard Reports’ this enables users to configure a report for various geographical areas in England and Wales, from the country level down to postcode sectors over a defined period of time.
Epimorphics worked with HMLR to design and build the service, which we also run.
