There is currently a Court Registration Fee of £110 for registering each LPA.

If you receive certain benefits you may be exempt from the Court Registration Fee.

If your attorney pays to register the LPA, they can reclaim the costs from you. An Attorney can also claim any expenses that they incur as a result of their role as Attorney, such as postage and travel costs. We can advise Attorneys on carrying out their role.

A Single LPA (either Financial Decisions or Health & Care Decisions) costs £275 (plus VAT) and mirror LPAs for couples costs £375 (plus VAT) (both including registration at the Office of the Public Guardian but excluding Court Registration Fee).
