London boroughs potentially overheating:-

Lambeth, Lewisham and Waltham Forest
Year on Year growth between 26% and 29% in these boroughs would usually point to an overheating market however as growth has largely stayed the same as the previous month this could be an early sign of the London market slowing down.


Newsham, Merton, Ealing, Greenwich, Hackney and Camden
These boroughs are all performing very well and are experiencing year on year growth between 21% and 23%.
