You may have seen in the news that if you registered a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) between 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2017, you can apply for a refund of part of your application fee. This is the amount that you would have paid to register your LPA.
The refund scheme applies to LPAs and also to Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPAs) made in England or Wales.
How to apply for a refund
The application for a refund can be made by the donor or an attorney and the easiest way to apply is online: https://www.gov.uk/power-of-attorney-refund.
It is possible to apply by telephone on 0300 456 0300, selecting option 6, if you do not have internet access.
