Families there have been labelled the capitals worst offenders for keeping an eye on the value of their neighbours homes, where a three- bedroom house costs 600,000. But rather than defend themselves against the accusation, residents admitted comparing house prices on a special website. The survey was compiled among users of, which helps people search for house prices by postcode. The poll also revealed that Richmond is the nosiest borough. Zoopla chief executive Alex Chesterman said users have to enter their own address before searching other postcodes -- making it easy to spot who uses the site to snoop. Homeowners have become increas- ingly obsessed with their neighbours house values, he said. Of the 3,732 people polled, 42 per cent readily admitted looking up the value of their neighbours properties on the website. Others revealed they snooped on the values of homes owned by col- leagues and family. Monkville Avenue resident Dav Shah, 35, said he wasnt surprised that his neighbours were curious about house prices. Its a very property-orientated area, the businessman added. Lindsay Cuthill, director of Savills estate agency, said: Theres a London obsession with house prices. Id imagine its true of a lot of streets because we have to pay so much for property. Sue Vasner, 65, retired: The street has gone from being an ageing neighbourhood to a young one. We are nosy as we subscribe to that website. Andy McIntosh, 39, project manager: The news doesnt surprise me, its a small road. Ive been on Zoopla and know how much peoples houses are worth. June Hanan, 45, mother of three: I look at property prices all the time because everyone knows someone who might want to buy your house. In the spy street: Monkville Avenue in Barnet, where a house costs 600,000 Punished: Brown will clear rubbish What the residents say... CHRIS BROWN today learned how he will be spending his community service -- donning an orange vest to collect rubbish and clean up graffiti. Dressed in the traditional road- sweeping uniform, Brown will pick up litter from along motorways in Richmond, Virginia. Brown, 20, was sentenced to five years probation, 180 days of community labour and a year of domestic violence counselling after he admitted attacking ex- girlfriend Rihanna in February. A worker at Richmond City Council revealed details of Browns hard labour programme, which will also involve trimming bushes and washing police cars. Doug Conner said Brown will be kept under the watchful eye of a supervisor to make sure he doesnt cut any corners. And while the singer said he was willing to do whatever work was given to him, it could affect his chances of performing at the Michael Jackson tribute concert in Vienna on 26 September. Jermaine Jackson yesterday said he hoped Brown would perform, but he would have to wait to see if a judge would allow him to leave the US. Meanwhile, Rihanna, 21, showed off some tiger-print nails as she enjoyed a shopping spree in New York. index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html
