    LPA partial refunds available

    LPA partial refunds available 5th Feb 18 at 5:22 PM
    The government are now offering partial refunds to people who paid for Lasting Power of Attorney between 2013 and the price reduction of 2017.
    https://www.gov.uk/power-of-attorney-refund
    It only takes a few minutes to apply online.

    This deserves to be more widely publicised, but there doesn't seem to be a way of flagging it up to the MSE team for their attention.

    POA refund refusal
    • #3
    • 10th Apr 18, 9:48 AM
    I put in an application for my husband and myself, which was easy to do online. It is supposedly for registrations after April 2013. Our POA's were registered 1 May 2013 and they have refused us. I have tried phoning, but started off at no. 34 in the queue, getting to no. 15 after 50 mins., when I gave up. I only get 60 mins. free calls included in my phone package. Frustrated, I have now emailed them. Will I get a reply this year.

    Is it genuine? I have just been approached by the solicitor who acted for my father about this, but it doesn't feel right. Why would people be offered a refund? There is no explanation on the 'website'.

    It's very genuine.

    People are being offered a refund because they were charged too much.

    If you still don't feel right, ask your solicitor to explain it again.
