UK house prices grow fastest in north of England and Midlands

House prices have grown fastest since the UK voted to leave the EU in cities in the Midlands, the north of England, Wales and Scotland, according to the property website Zoopla.

Birmingham (up 16%), Manchester and Leicester (both up 15%) have seen the fastest growth since the June 2016 referendum, followed by Edinburgh and Nottingham (14%), Leeds and Cardiff (12%), and Liverpool and Sheffield (11%).

Zoopla said economic and political uncertainty caused by the Brexit vote was more acutely felt in southern English cities, while lack of affordability was also a major factor.

Cities in the south of England had previously led house price growth across Britain. In London, property values surged 52% between 2013 and mid-2016, compared with 47% in Cambridge and 42% in Oxford.
