LSL Acadata HPI 

In 2003, Acadata pioneered use of Land Registry (LR) data for a mainstream house price index, launched by the Financial Times as the FTHPI. In 2010 LSL Property Services plc assumed the preparation costs from Acadata, rebranding the index as the LSL Property Services/Acadata HPI (now LSL Acadata E&W HPI), Your Move Acadata Scotland HPI; also Principality HPI for Wales, launched 2017.

Whilst the Land Registry (LR) is the only source of the final prices at which residential property is sold (including properties bought with cash which are excluded from mortgage-based data), the problem exists that only c.38% of sales are promptly reported to LR. These “emerging” data are insufficient to be definitive which meant that LR data were long regarded as too “untimely” to be useful. Acadata resolved this problem using a custom-built “index of indices” methodology developed by Dr Stephen Satchell at the University of Cambridge and Dr George Christodoulakis, then at City University. The model provides the emerging % Monthly change to the average house price for both the current month and the month ahead. These are used in our LSL Acadata E&W HPI initial release issued shortly after each month end.

Indices seek to provide an accurate measure of house price inflation. But our “Comparison of Indices” published in our monthly LSL Acadata E&W HPI News Release shows by how much they frequently differ. Indices measure the level of house prices as well as their monthly and annual changes. Our “Which House Price Index?” paper explains.

As FTHPI, our index was chosen by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the world's largest derivative exchange, for a possible residential house price derivative, put on hold by the 2007 financial crisis.

LSL Acadata E&W HPI is released for publication between the 12th and the 18th of every month. Our Your Move Acadata Scotland HPI follows for downloading from our website. The downloadable documents below include our latest News Release and full historic data series.
