If you applied to register a Lasting Power of Attorney or an Enduring Power of Attorney between 1st April 2013 and 31st March 2017, you can now claim back some of the fees, as it has now been decided that the registration fees charges at that time were too high.
The refund will be an amount of between £34.00 and £54.00 (depending on the timing of the registration) plus interest at 0.5% and this will be paid directly into your bank account.
You can apply for a refund either by telephoning 0300 4560300 (option 6) or applying online at gov.uk/power-of-attorney-refund. Your bank account number and sort code will be needed as part of this application.
