The Nationwide’s findings showed that UK house price rises accelerated at the end of 2013, rising by 1.4% in December compared with November.

The increase was driven by annual house price growth of 14.9% in the final quarter compared with a year earlier in London, although prices rose in all regions.

The Nationwide data suggests that average prices in London are now 14% higher than their previous peak in 2007 with a typical London home now costing £345,186.

However, Nationwide said the average UK property price remained 5% below the peak in prices reached in late 2007.

Robert Gardner, Nationwide's chief economist said "Part of the reason for the acceleration in house price growth is that the supply side of the market has not kept pace with the upturn in demand, even though buyer numbers remain subdued by historic standards."
