Posted on March 06, 2018

If you have made a Lasting Power of Attorney between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017, you could be due a refund. 

The Ministry of Justice and Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) have announced that refunds are being offered to those who may have been charged more than needed to register their power of attorney between 2013 and 2017.

The application fee was subsequently reduced from 1 April 2017, and OPG has now launched a refund scheme for those who paid a higher fee within the qualifying period.

According to, the online claim process is quick and simple, with only one form requiring completion for each donor.
