Power of Attorney – Refund of Fees

If you applied to register your Enduring or Lasting Power of Attorney between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017, you will be entitled to apply for a refund of part of the registration fee you paid to the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) from 1 February 2018.

During this time, the operating costs of the OPG were reduced and as they are not permitted to make a profit from the fees, they are now operating a refund scheme for those who paid the higher fee during the qualifying period.

If you paid the current fee of £82 for each registered document; the fee that applied from 1 April 2017, you will not be entitled to the refund. Otherwise, you can apply online for your refund, which will range from £34 – £54 (depending on which fee you paid) plus 0.5% interest. If you paid a reduced fee for your application, you will get half the refund.

Please follow the link for details of how to claim your refund

or call Refunds Helpline on 0300 456 0300 (choose option 6).
