You can apply for a refund of deputyship fees paid to the Office of the Public Guardian in England and Wales between 1 April 2008 and 31 March 2015.
If you’re a deputy acting under a current court order, you do not need to apply for a refund. You’ll get one automatically if your client paid too much in fees.
