More than 12,000 properties sold for more than a million pound in the UK in 2020, with one reaching an impressive selling price of more than £44m.

Despite the country entering the first lockdown due to coronavirus last spring, it didn’t stop the flat at 1 Mulberry Square in the City of Westminster, selling for £44,278,490 on April 21.

It was closely followed by two other London homes which went for £36m and £35.5m in both March and January respectively.

Unsurprisingly all of the top ten properties were in the capital and they all brought in more than £20m for their sellers.

At the other end of the market three properties – a flat and two terraced houses – all sold for a bargain £15,000.

The flat in Washington, Sunderland, sold on October 13, the house in Burnley, Lancashire completed on March 27 and the house in Coundon, Bishop Auckland was sold on April 27.

According to the Land Registry, 552,125 home sales were registered across England and Wales have been registered for 2020.

There were 12,622 sales with the price at more than £1m and of those 2,496 went for £2m or more.
