Claiming a Power of Attorney refund

If you applied to register a power of attorney from April 1st 2013 to March 31st 2017 you may able to get part of your application fee back.LPA_Wills_Probate_Website.jpg

The refund applies to both lasting powers of attorney (LPA) and enduring powers of attorney (EPA), and an application for the refund must be made before January 31st 2021.

Who can apply?

You can make a claim for this refund if you are either of the following -

  • the ‘donor’ - the person who made the power of attorney
  • an ‘attorney’ - appointed by the donor in an LPA or EPA to make decisions on their behalf

The refund must be paid to the donor and only one claim is needed per donor, even if you made more than one power of attorney.

How much will I get?

How much you receive depends on when you paid the fees. You’ll also get 0.5% interest.

You can view a full breakdown of the refund amounts here.

How can I claim?

It takes about 10 minutes to claim online on the Government website.

However, before you claim you will need:

  • the donor’s UK bank account number and sort code
  • a copy of the LPA (if you have it)

Once you have all of the relevant information you can visit the Government website and begin the application. You can do so by visiting - https://www.gov.uk/power-of-attorney-refund
