Claim your Power of Attorney refund

Power of Attorney refund

A new refund scheme introduced by the Government is causing a stir as millions of people have been overcharged by the Court when setting up their Powers of Attorney.

If you applied to register a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) or Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) between 1 April 2013 and 31st March 2017, you will be eligible to apply for a partial refund of up to £54 per document.

During this period, the application process became more efficient and the Office of the Public Guardian made cost savings, which were not passed onto the consumers.

A survey by Old Mutual found that 1.8 million customers had been overcharged by up to £54.

Sarah Crook, a Power of Attorney specialist advisor at Osborne Morris & Morgan, said

“If clients have an LPA or EPA then they should check when this was registered to see if they are eligible for a refund. It is very easy to lodge a claim”

You can make your claim for a refund, if you are a donor or the appointed Attorney, simply by completing the online claim form on the Gov.uk website.

Not set up a Lasting Power of Attorney? Failure to appoint trusted individuals to make decisions on your behalf,can be a costly disaster if you lose capacity at any time. To avoid the unnecessary frustration and distress, speak to one of our specialist advisors today, by calling 01525 378177 or online.
