    Excellent news.

    Land registry year on year positive, and Halifax getting closer.

    House prices rising on most other indices now as well.

    And of course, with rents at 5.5% per year of house prices on average, and mortgage interest at just 3.4% on average, renting is a very costly situation for most people.

    Can anyone tell me why? is it too small to notice? Funny, that, I thought Brit1234 noted every 0.1% fall religiously.

    Down from $1900 per ounce then to well under $1600 now. That's really got to hurt!

    In all seriousness though, it is good to see the majority of indices now showing that the house price rises that London has experienced since the bottom of the house price crash in April 2009 are now starting to feed out across the rest of the UK.

    Most parts of the UK have been stable or rising for the last couple of years, and almost all parts of the UK remain at prices higher than 2009.

    Some are even setting new peaks, and not just London.
