Options and fees explained

Registered: A lasting Power of Attorney must be registered with the court and a fee paid before it can be used. LV= Legal Services can do this for you to make sure it all goes smoothly or you can choose to do it yourself later on. Please note that it can take up to ten weeks for the court to complete registration, so it's always best not to delay.

Court fee: Court fee for registration with the Office of the Public Guardian is £110 per Lasting Power of Attorney. This fee can be waived in some circumstances.

Doctor's fee: There may also be £50-£100 doctor's fee for assessing mental capacity, which has not been included in the prices listed above.

Why have a Power of Attorney?

One day you may not be able to make your own decisions about how to manage your property and finances or medical and health care. Putting a Power of Attorney in place now means that you can choose who'll help you in the future and what you want them to be able to do on your behalf. There are three different types and it's important to choose the Power of Attorney that suits you.

  • Lasting Power of Attorney (Property and Affairs) - This will allow your Attorney to deal with and make decisions about your property and financial affairs including cash, access to bank accounts, investments and other financial matters.
  • Lasting Power of Attorney (Health and Welfare) - Your Attorney will have the authority to make medical and welfare decisions on your behalf in the future if you become unable to do so yourself.
  • Ordinary Power of Attorney - This is a simple document which is useful if you wish to give someone Power of Attorney for a short time (for example, if you’re going abroad to work and you need someone to manage your finances while you’re away).

In all cases, you can have more than one Attorney appointed.

LV= and Lyons Davidson Solicitors have teamed up to provide you with a legal service you can trust and access to a helpful team seven days a week.
