(441) HOUSE PRICES WEBSITE
A website based in Edinburgh reveals the prices being paid for houses and other heritable properties, not only in Scotland but also in England and Wales. Steve Dunnett apparently used the Freedom of Information legislation to gain access to the land registers in the two jurisdictions and publish the price information thus obtained. The site is accessible at http://www.nethouseprices.com, and provides its service free of charge. It currently claims half a million hits a day. Scots Law News now knows the results of all recent sales in its home and surrounding streets, and has dabbled around in several other areas as well – it’s fascinating stuff once you get started. There are maps as well to help you locate the properties in question.
