I've jacked it up at the front laterly.

Handbrake is defo on when it makes the noise. Could it be fecked? I think also that the brakes new some work as when you get some weight in the car it's quite hard to stop very quickly. I have it booked in on Monday for this to be looked at!

Its probably your trailing arm bearings.

New axle time.

Jack up your car and see if their's any in and out/side to side movement.

firstly is it drum or discs u have on the back? if its drums u will find that when u park on a hill or get out of a car that strain is placed on the rear shoes (if its drums) and u will usually hear a slight creaking noise as the drums grip, its nothing to worry about, if anything its common!

If its discs im sure it will work in a similer way to the above and the sound can also be common from rear discs!

Hope that helps!

Mine did the same; it was where the handbrake needs tightening on one side
