While some London boroughs - notably Kensington and Chelsea - have reported house prices continuing to sure over the past year, others have undergone more muted growth, and some have posted significant dips.

According to Your Move's latest England & Wales House Price Index, Kensington and Chelsea prices have risen by 30 per cent over the year.

Overall, prices in London fell for the third month in a row in February, dipping by 0.7 per cent to have the average property in the capital worth £602,539, down 1.5 per cent on last year.

Price falls aren't concentrated in the most expensive boroughs, with the top 11 of the capital's 33 boroughs posting the smallest fall over the 12 months to March - down 0.2 per cent, compared to a four per cent fall among mid-priced boroughs, and 0.3 per cent in the cheapest 11.

That has though, been fuelled by the 30.7 per cent spike in the average price in Kensington and Chelsea, which was driven by seven high value property sales.

Some other high-end areas have recorded chunky drops, with a 15.9 per cent fall in prices in Wandsworth, a 14.7 per cent dip in Richmond upon Thames and an 11.4 per cent slump in the City of London.
