Nationwide said that prices in the capital had fallen by 0.6 per cent in the year to September while overall prices rose by 2 per, down from 2.1 per cent in August and the weakest pace of growth since June 2013.

He added that "the upward momentum in house price growth across regional cities shows no sign of slowing".

He said: 'Housing market activity, as measured by the number of housing transactions and mortgage approvals, has strengthened a little in recent months, though remains relatively subdued by historic standards.

'The lack of homes on the market is providing ongoing support to prices. "There are optimistic signs that the resilient London market will catch up to the rest of the United Kingdom in the coming months".

Philippe Coutinho sends message to Liverpool FC fans about his future
Michael Owen has revealed that he is backing Liverpool to beat Newcastle in Sunday's late kick-off. Their poor form has led to criticism of the team's defensive frailty and goalscoring record.

On Friday, Bank of England governor Mark Carney gave his clearest signal yet that the Monetary Policy Committee could be about to increase the benchmark rate from its current level of 0.25 per cent. He said this would bring the first base rate rise since July 2007, although any rises would cap off at 1.25% over the next five years. In recent years the vast majority of new mortgages have been extended on fixed interest rates. Rates fell on two-, three- and five-year terms.

"Moreover, a 0.25% increase in rates is likely to have a modest impact on most borrowers who are on variable rates". Economists had forecast a marginal 0.1 percent increase. The English Housing Survey suggests that around 12% of households already spend over 30% of their gross income on their mortgage each month.

The East Midlands topped the list with average values jumping 5.1 per cent in the year to September. This is the first time London has been the weakest region since 2005. Annual price growth in Scotland was similar to last quarter at 1.9%.

Northern England saw a 3.2% year-on-year increase, while in the South prices were up 1.9%.
