United Kingdom: Property rights index

A subcomponent of the Index of Economic Freedom, the property rights index measures the degree to which a countrys laws protect private property rights, and the degree to which its government enforces those laws.

Higher scores are more desirable, i.e. property rights are better protected. Scores are from 0 to 100.

The index also assesses the likelihood that private property will be expropriated and analyzes the independence of the judiciary, the existence of corruption within the judiciary, and the ability of individuals and businesses to enforce contracts.

The Global Property Guide considers protection of property rights as a significant factor affecting the desirability of a residential real estate investment.

The United Kingdom (UK) has monthly and quarterly house price time-series. The Land Registry has a monthly house price index. Nationwide, and the Halifax, and many other commercial organizations publish quality UK house price time-series. Construction activity is published by Office for National Statistics (ONS) and property transactions data by the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML).

The rents situation is much less good, the only figures being from the Association of Registered Letting Agents (ARLA).
