House prices in south of England fall for first time since 2009

Brexit uncertainty takes toll but prices climb slowly in east
Midlands and east of England

House prices have fallen across the south of England for the
first time since the last recession in 2009, as Brexit uncertainty
holds down the property market.

In a sign that falling prices in London are spreading to other
regions as the departure date from the EU draws near, the
Office for National Statistics
said the average cost of a home
also fell in the south-east and south-west of England in the year
to June.
