Key facts

These regional values are largely a reflection on the North/South divide in property prices. Unsurprisingly, the highest overall totals of equity release released in 2016 remained in the South East regions, with both London and the rest of the area both topping over £100m, with the rest of the South East hitting just over £165m. London also saw the highest average total facility out of all regions.
 
Out of the rest of the UK, the lower house prices in the North resulted in property values and total facilities of those taking out equity release up to a less than a third of that of the capital.
