LPA fees refund scheme

The Office of the Public Guardian is offering refunds to those who were overcharged for lasting or enduring powers of attorney applications between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017.

The online claim can only be made by a donor or an attorney on his behalf (they will need the donor's UK bank account and sort code). Apparently the process only takes 10 minutes so anyone eligible for a refund should apply.

Refund amounts: 

When fee paid                                           Refund for each power of attorney

April to September 2013                         £54

October 2013 to March 2014                   £34

April 2014 to March 2015                        £37

April 2015 to March 2016                        £38  

April 2016 to March 2017                        £45
