If you applied to register a lasting power of attorney or enduring power of attorney between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017, you may be able to claim part of your application fee back.
Why is this happening?
The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) processes applications for power of attorney. It’s now cheaper for the OPG to do this than it used to be, so power of attorney application fees were reduced on 1 April 2017 from £110 to £82.
The Ministry of Justice sets OPG’s fees. It has decided that some people were overcharged before the fee reduction, and has launched a scheme for people who paid for a power of attorney between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017 to receive a partial refund.
