The Office for National Statistics (ONS) released its house inflation data for the U.K. on Tuesday. The U.K. house price index rose at a seasonally adjusted rate of 0.8% in September, slower than a 0.9% in August.
On a yearly basis, the U.K. house price index increased at a seasonally adjusted rate of 6.1% in September, after a 5.5% in August. It was the highest rise since March.
The higher house price inflation was mainly driven by an increase in prices in the East and the South East.
The average mix-adjusted house price was £286,000 in September, up from £285,000 in August.
