Momentum slowed to just 0.1% month-on-month, property analysts Hometrack found.

The rise in house prices "slowed dramatically" with just 12% of London postcodes registering price gains in July and a further 11% reporting a drop.

Hometrack said this marked the first time in four years that London has had a smaller proportion of markets registering price gains than regions across England and Wales.
