ONS House Price Index

Annual house price growth nudged up from 8.5% to 8.7% in the final build-up to the EU referendum, with the east of England leading the way, data from the Office for National Statistics and Land Registry have revealed.

The June house price index showed the average UK house price was £213,927, up 1% on May, but of course the landscape has changed dramatically since the end of June and the Brexit vote.

The east of England overtook London with house prices increasing 14% in the year to June 2016 to £270,000, compared with 12.6% growth in the capital to £472,000.

The lowest annual growth was in the north-east where prices increased by 1.5% over the year to £124,000.
