Buying a home in London: Land Registry report reveals 10 boroughs with the fastest-growing house prices

Discover the capital's Top 10 property shooting stars, where house prices are booming and buyers are moving in.
East and south-east London continue to dominate the list of the capital's top 10 boroughs with the fastest-rising house prices, according to new figures released by the Land Registry.

The 2012 Olympics borough of Newham, in the east, keeps its top spot, recording a 17.2 per cent rise over the past year and a 0.4 per cent monthly increase, taking the average cost of a home there to £295,306.

The north-east London borough of Enfield has risen six spots in a month to take third position in the table. Meanwhile Greenwich, in the south-east, has dropped from second place to eighth.

Barnet, again in north-east London, is a new entry in the top 10. With house prices recording annual growth of 15 per cent, this area now sits in ninth place, replacing Waltham Forest - which recorded the highest monthly fall in average prices, down 1.8 per cent.

Hillingdon and Harrow remain the only two west London boroughs to be listed in the top 10, while there is still an even split of areas north and south of the river.
