How much does it cost to register a power of attorney?

Unless you qualify for a fee exemption, registering a lasting power of attorney costs £82 per form. So, if you’re registering a financial LPA and a health LPA, you’ll pay £164.

You can pay by:

  • Card over the phone — the OPG will contact you after receiving your form.
  • Cheque — make it payable to ‘Office of the Public Guardian’ and write your name on the back and enclose with your form.

If you earn less than £12,000 a year, or you’re on certain income-related benefits, you may be able to apply for a fee reduction. To find out if you’re eligible and apply, download the application form here.
