LTT rate change and impact of coronavirus (COVID-19)

The data in this release should be considered in the context of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. This had a significant impact on the number of property transactions and tax due during the first half of 2020-21. It therefore affects comparisons made between this period and the same period in 2019-20.

The national lockdown imposed on 23 March 2020 resulted in the housing market being mainly closed until it was partially re-opened on 22 June. At that point, house viewings could take place in vacant properties along with house moves where a sale has been agreed but not yet completed. The market was then more fully opened on 27 July to coincide with a change in LTT rates effective until 31 March 2021. Although there were some further local lockdowns imposed towards the end of the period reported in this release (end September 2020), these do not appear to have had any significant impact on transaction counts.

In our quarterly release for July to September 2020, we presented the weekly number of transactions submitted to the Welsh Revenue Authority. On this page, we have updated the chart presented in that release (up to the week beginning 7 November). Please see the quarterly release for July to September 2020 for commentary on and explanation of this chart.
