Barking and Dagenham’s 10 most expensive properties each sold for £1 million or more last year, figures reveal.

Land Registry data show more than £650m worth of property changed hands in the borough in 2017, with three sales at £5m or more.

A housing block on the redeveloped Gascoigne Estate was the borough’s most expensive property, selling for £11.7m on March 31.

Another sale registered at the estate in Barking Road, Barking, came in second place, which sold for £9.2m.

A purpose-built care home in Rainham Road South, Alexander Court Care Centre, followed with a £5.5m price tag.

The data registered 2,049 sales in the borough for 2017.

More than 850,000 residential sales were listed across England and Wales last year, down three per cent from the 877,307 recorded by this time the previous year.

The government shelved plans to privatise the Land Registry following heavy criticism in 2016.
