Bar chart of the number of assets by price paid from  nominal and non-monetary to over £1 million and where price is unknown

The data for this chart is available in Table 5 of the Tables and Charts supporting document.

The non-monetary category consists of a variety of legal processes by which an asset can be transferred without money being exchanged, e.g. a gift or legacy. Prices under £100 are taken to be nominal.

The most common price category was £10,001-£100,000: 174 assets

To give a fair comparison over time all purchase prices have been converted to 2020 prices.

Excluding non-monetary transactions and nominal amounts, a total of £2.0 million was paid for the 15 assets acquired in 2020.

The price of an asset can range from its market value down to a nominal sum paid or a non-monetary transaction. Most prices have been verified against the Land Register.

Of the 115 assets not on the Land Register, 94 do not have price information available. For the remaining 21 assets, prices have been taken from the original source.
