Lasting Power of Attorney - OPG Fees REDUCED!
Due to the rise in numbers of applications, the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) has confirmed that LPA registrations will have a reduced fee from the 1st April 2017.
The OPG has advised that the income it receives in registration fees now exceeds the cost of its service. The fee for a single application will drop from £110 to £82, and the fee for an application qualifying for remission (where the applicant has a low income) will now cost £41 instead of £55.
This will, in turn, increase LPA registration numbers further as this now becomes a more affordable undertaking for the wider population, a couple having both Property and Affairs, and Health and Welfare powers will save a total of £112.
