The Office of the Public Guardian has announced that the fee for registering a Lasting Power of Attorney has been reduced from £110 to £82 for all applications received after 1 April 2017.
Chris Wallworth commented:
This is good news for families who are facing the possibilty of dementia affecting an elderly parent. The fee has been reduced because the Office of the Public Guardian has been able to reduce the cost of providing the service and is passing the cost saving on the public. Warm words from Ministers, referred to on the OPG’s website, are in stark contrast to the Government’s attitude to Probate Registry fees
