Lasting Power of Attorney Fee Refunds
If you registered a Lasting Power of Attorney or an Enduring Power of Attorney (or registered one on behalf someone else in your capacity as their attorney) between 1st April 2013 and 31 March 2017 then you could be due a partial refund on the application fee paid to the Office of the Public Guardian.
The application fees were reduced from £110 to £82 from 1 April 2017 by the Ministry of Justice due to a reduction in operating costs in processing applications.
It is anticipated that around two million people may be due refund.
If you think that you are due a refund, a claim can be made using the simple online service by visiting www.gov.uk/power-of-attorney-refund.
