The Halifax house price index in the United Kingdom rose 8.2 percent from a year earlier in April 2021, the most since April 2016, as the market continued to maintain its recent momentum and as the Stamp Duty holiday was extended beyond its March deadline. On a monthly basis, house prices climbed 1.4 percent, the most since last September. “The stamp duty holiday continues to add impetus to an extremely active market, magnifying the current shortage of available homes as buyers aim to take advantage of the Government scheme. The influence of the stamp duty holiday will fade gradually over the coming months as it’s tapered out but low stock levels, low interest rates and continued demand is likely to continue to underpin prices in the market," Russell Galley, Managing Director, Halifax, said. source: Halifax and Bank of Scotland
