House sales hit by lockdown

The number of homes sold in May 2019 was double the number of those sold in the same month of this year, mainly because of COVID-19 lockdown. HM Revenue & Customs says that 46,230 property transactions were completed in May, down 52% from last year. Restrictions on the housing market were lifted in the middle of the month.
