I have been doing a few Lasting Powers of Attorney recently and I have been shocked by some of the prices people are being charged for these documents. Firstly please check when you get a quote that it includes registration of the documents. Some companies are charging to prepare the Lasting Power of Attorney documents and then adding on another fee when they come to register them which should be done straight away. There is the Office of the Public Guardian fee to pay of £110.00 unless your income is under £12,000 when you are entitled to a reduction of 50% if you are on certain benefits you may be entitled to free registration. But don’t get drawn into a low cost for initial preparation of the document only to find another fee is going to be added to prepare them for registration.
At Richardson’s Wills Ltd. we quote you one affordable price and that is for the whole package from beginning to end.
