    Claim a Lasting Power of Attorney Refund 9th Mar 18 at 3:08 PM
    I expect everyone knows this already, but just in case there is someone out there who hasn't heard it might be useful

    Claim a power of attorney refund
    You can get part of your application fee back if you applied to register a power of attorney from 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2017.

    I completed the application form online this morning and it took less than ten minutes. Only one application is needed to claim the refund for both types which made it even quicker.

    If the person who made the POA has died you have to claim by telephone. I've tried any number of times - and you are cut off automatically after 5 minutes, so it's a frustrating process.

    I had not heard about this, & probably never would have (how did you find out about it?). It was indeed quick and easy, and I am now expecting a 110 refund. Thanks so much for posting.

You might want to consider if any of your friends and relatives might benefit. As you say its a doddle to do.

    If you can claim on line it is extremely easy & also remarkably quick. They were talking 3 months but I received mine in less than 1 month.

    My father applied in Jan 2013 but it was stamped by Office of Public Guardian on 5th April 2013. Does anyone know if we should receive a refund?

    our POA was sorted out by a solicitor when the wills were drawn up. can you still apply if this is the case or do you have to have done it yourselves?
    thanks

    Donor or Grantor can apply - the form asks you which you are.
