Refund of Power of Attorney Fees - How to Claim
Under a new Government scheme, if you paid to register a Power of Attorney in England or Wales between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017 you can apply for a partial refund. How much you get depends on when you paid the fees. You will also get 0.5% interest.
How to claim a refund
You can make a claim if you were the donor or the attorney but the refund will only be paid to the donor. To apply, you can claim a refund online or phone the Office of the Public Guardian's helpline on 0300 456 0300 and select option 6. It takes up to 12 weeks for your claim to be processed. There is currently no deadline by which you must apply.
February is Charity Will Month
Our offices in Gorleston, Great Yarmouth and Halesworth are showing they care by donating fees for Wills to charitable causes during February. The scheme is open to everyone and there is no expectation that people should leave a legacy to any of the charities supported.
Making a Will is one of the most thoughtful and important things we can do to protect those we love. Yet fewer than half of people have made one. Most say they simply haven't got around to it and yet it can take years to sort out someone's estate if they die without a Will, and can cause signficant problems for their families. Norton Peskett will be offering readers the opportunity to have a simple Will, professionally drawn up and you will be asked to consider making a donation to one of the charities below that reflects the fee normally charged when making a Will.
Our offices in Norfolk (Gorleston and Great Yarmouth) will be supporting Norfolk Will Help which raises funds for Age UK Norwich, Big C, Keeping Abreast, Nelson's Journey and NNAB.
Our Halesworth office will be supporting Suffolk Age UK. For further information go to www.ageuk.org.uk/suffolk
