Aldermore's Residential Mortgages Managing Director Charles Haresnape said:
"Land Registry data published today confirms the continued rise in house prices, driven mainly by the South East of England. It is staggering to see that in this region prices are now above pre-crash levels.
"We need to be mindful that Government schemes will fuel these rises further but customer affordability should be a natural break on unsustainability."
