Refunds due on powers of attorney court fees

If you applied to register a power of attorney between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017 you will probably be due a partial refund of the Court fees incurred.

The Office of the Public Guardian has announced that they have been overcharging applicants and making a profit from the court fees levied.  Government agencies are generally not allowed to charge more than the cost of supplying the service provided.  Refunds range from £34 to £54 plus interest for each document registered depending on the date of application for registration.

The donor or attorney(s) can make the claim for a refund online at or by telephone on 0300 456 0300 (choose option 6).
