Power of attorney fees

Form and guidance to get a discount or help with fees


Use this form if you need help with the cost of registering a lasting power of attorney (LPA) or enduring power of attorney (EPA). There are 3 options for help:

  • If you get certain benefits, you may qualify for an exemption, which means the entire fee is waived.
  • If your gross income is less than £12,000 a year, you may qualify for a remission, which means half of the fee is waived.
  • If you get Universal Credit, you may qualify for a remission – the Office of the Public Guardian will work out how much of the fee will be waived when you send them your application.

Doesn’t apply to you? The full fee is £110 to apply to register a power of attorney. If an LPA has been rejected as invalid, you can apply again within 3 months for £55.
