According to the Land Registry, 29,747 residential sales have been registered from November 2016, up from 25,714 in October.
Across England and Wales, there were 488 £1m+ sales, including 88 at £2m+, compared to 427 and 62 respectively in October.
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.
It may take several weeks for sales to be registered after completion so some sales from later in November may not be listed yet.
