Haringey is leading a nationwide fall in house prices, according to new figures.

The borough has been dubbed London’s “worst performer” by Britain’s biggest property website, Rightmove, with house prices in the area falling by almost five per cent last month.

The average price of a home in the borough dropped from £689,472 to £656,512, a drop of 4.8 per cent.

Across London prices fell by 0.5 percent, leading a spokesperson for Rightmove to say that asking prices for property in the capital may have “come off the boil”.
