The number of equity release taken out has increased by 11%. East Anglia released on average £67,000 compared to £184,000 in London, which was an 80% rise. The South East saw a 33% rise.

Drawdown was the most popular type of Equity Release options at 61%. Overall the data shows that approximately 65% of applicants used the funds for home and garden improvements, 29% used the money to fund holidays and 24% used the funds to help or treat family and friends.
