Lasting Power of Attorney and Enduring Power of Attorney registration fee refunds
Court Fee Refund
If you registered an Enduring Power of Attorney or Lasting Power of Attorney between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017 you may be entitled to a refund or part of the court fee from the Office of the Public Guardian. A claim can be made either by the donor of the power of attorney or by an attorney acting on his or her behalf. The amount to be refunded depends on when the application for registration was made and varies between £34 and £54, provided a full fee was initially paid.
The refund can be claimed online at www.gov.uk/power-of-attorney-refund
There is also a telephone helpline: 0300 456 0300 (option 6).
