House prices in London are falling while they continue to rise elsewhere across the UK

London was the only region to see a year-on-year price decline, with a 0.6% fall.

Across the United Kingdom the average price of a home increased at its slowest slowest pace in more than four years in September, the building society said.

On a national level, house prices grew 2 percent in September from the previous year, following August's 2.1 percent increase.

Northern Ireland saw a softening in annual growth to 2.4%, from 3.8% the previous quarter, while Wales saw a pick-up, from 1.4% the previous quarter to 2.6%.

The UK's biggest mutual confirmed the marginal drop of 0.6% year-on-year contrasts with a stabilising housing market UK-wide, showing price growth of 2%. However, the gap between prices in the North and South remains exceptionally high by historic standards, having doubled over the past decade.

Peter Williams, executive director of The Intermediary Mortgage Lenders Association (IMLA) said speculation on an interest rate rise has not interrupted the fall in mortgage rates, boosted by the Term Funding Scheme (TFS). "For example, on the average mortgage, an increase of 0.25% would increase monthly payments by £15 to £665 (equivalent to £180 per year)". London remains the priciest place in the United Kingdom to buy a home, however.
