    Family members and others who registered Lasting Powers of Attorney or Enduring Powers of Attorney before April 2017 may now be able to reclaim some of the fees paid from the Office of the Public Guardian.
    The fees rebate is available for donors or attorneys who registered either an LPA or EPA with the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017
    Refunds must be claimed by 31 January 2021, and the refund must be made to the donor him or herself.
    The amount that can be claimed back depends on when the fee was paid, and how much:
    April to September 2013 – £54
    October 2013 to March 2014 – £34
    April 2014 to March 2015 – £37
    April 2015 to March 2016 – £38
    April 2016 to March 2017 – £45
    Interest at 0.5% will also be added to the amount repayable. Applications for the rebate can mostly be made online or by phone. But if the donor has died, the application by personal representatives must be made by email or post.
