ARE YOU ENTITLED TO A REFUND OF OVERPAID LPA/EPA FEES?

If you applied to register a Power of Attorney from 1st April 2013 to 31st March 2017 you can make a claim if you are:-

The Donor – the person who made the Power of Attorney

An Attorney – appointed by the Donor in an LPA or EPA to make decisions on their behalf.

The fee to register a Power of Attorney was £110.00 until April 2017 when it was reduced to £82.00. This suggests that prior to the reduction people may have been overcharged by around £28.00 per LPA.

You must claim your refund by the 31st January 2021. For more details contact OPG Contact Centre on 0300 4560300 and select Option 6 or alternatively claim online www.gov.uk/power-of-attorney-refund
