POWERS OF ATTORNEY

Our fees for Standard Lasting Powers of Attorney (‘LPAs’) are as follows:

The fee payable to the Office of the Public Guardian for registering each LPA is currently £82. In some cases, you may be entitled to a fee exemption or reduction, depending on your financial circumstances. You do not have to register the document straight away but we recommend that you do to ensure that there are no delays if your Attorneys need to use the LPAs in future.

A non-Standard LPA may be required if for example you have a business interest or you would like to appoint multiple replacement Attorneys. Once you have explained your position we are usually able to provide a fee estimate.
