In our February update we featured your right to claim LPA refunds, which can be found here. In summary where an LPA was registered between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017 clients can apply for a partial application fee refund.

We recently received this feedback from clients:

"A little while ago your newsletter carried an item about reclaiming excess expenses incurred in setting up LPAs. My wife and I both applied for refunds and have just received around £75 each. Thank you for carrying this item."

It takes about10 minutes to complete the online application. You would simply need the donor's bank details and a copy of the LPA. Application can even be made where the donor has since died. If you need help or more information about making a claim, please contact Refunds Helpline on 0300 456 0300 or email
