How to claim your Power of Attorney refund
If you registered a Lasting Power of Attorney or an Enduring Power of Attorney in England and Wales between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017, you are entitled to claim a partial refund of the registration fee paid.
Why am I entitled to a refund?
During this period, the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) reduced their operating costs and became more efficient but failed to pass the cost-benefit onto the public.
The OPG has acknowledged that anybody who registered a power of attorney during this period paid more than was necessary.
How much will I receive?
You may receive up to £54 per registered power of attorney. They OPG will calculate your exact refund by reference to the date you paid the registration fee.
How can I claim?
Full details of how to claim are available on the www.gov.uk website.
If you have any questions regarding claiming a refund, you can contact the government’s refund helpline on 0300 456 0300 or email@example.com.
