A new scheme has been launched to refund those who may have paid more than they should for applying to register powers of attorney.
The scheme is being administered by the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG), who are the government body that monitor deputies and attorneys.
Holly Mieville-Hawkins is a Senior Associate in the Mental Capacity team at Enable Law. Kirstin Cook is a Legal Director for Foot Anstey’s Private Wealth group. Please contact either team members to see how we can help.
If you applied to register a lasting or enduring power of attorney with the OPG between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017, and paid an application fee, then you could be due a partial refund.
