Yorkshire Post - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

HOUSE prices have not re­cov­ered to 2007 boom lev­els any­where in the UK apart from two ar­eas, say The Hal­i­fax.

In Rochford, Es­sex, house prices are up one per cent on boom lev­els and in South Lake­land, in the North-west, they have risen by 0.1 per cent.

Even in Is­ling­ton, the best­per­form­ing London dis­trict, prices are still down by 0.1 per cent.

All 20 of the best per­form­ers are in the south of Eng­land, apart from Aberdeen­shire, where house prices have been held up by the oil in­dus­try

The worst per­form­ers are all in North­ern Ire­land, where some house prices are 53 per cent be­low the boom, fol­lowed by Corby in the East Mid­lands, down 35 per cent.
