News on LPAs and EPAs

Martin Justice, Head of Private Client at Everys, has some good news for clients who are looking to arrange a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) or register an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) as the fees have gone down.

From 1 April 2017, the fees for applying to register an LPA or an EPA reduced from £110 to £82, with the fee for resubmitting an LPA for registration reduced from £55 to £41.

The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) press statement says the fee reduction has been made possible by the high number of applications the OPG is processing and efficiencies which have driven down the cost of providing the service.

It will never be easy to think about a time when you won’t be able to make your own decisions, but hopefully cutting the fees will encourage even more people to take out LPAs, providing peace of mind for themselves and their families.
