Residential property sales in the UK in April hit their lowest monthly level since comparable records began in 2005, new figures show.
There were 38,060 transactions in April, according to provisional numbers from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
This was less than half the level seen in the same month last year.
Spring is usually a busy period for the property market, but the coronavirus lockdown halted activity.
The government lifted many of these restrictions on the sector in England in mid-May. The total number of UK property sales is slightly less than the previous low when the taps were turned off in the property market at the height of the financial crisis in January 2009.
