Non-residential property transactions are on the rise

HMRC data, reporting property transactions, shows level of activity in the UK property market in a given month and can act as a barometer providing insight into market confidence.

As such we felt it would be useful to provide the HMRC data for non-residential transactions as they become available on a monthly basis. Going forward we will be able to report in our Quarterly Return if there is a correlation between these statistics and our work with commercial property developers.

Seasonally adjusted non-residential transactions have risen for the second consecutive month in March 2019.
