On 1 April 2017 the registration fee for a lasting power of attorney (LPA) or enduring power of attorney in England and Wales will reduce from £110 to £82.
The fee for a repeat application to register an LPA will also fall from £55 to £41.
According to the Office of the Public Guardian, the increasing volume of applications means the income it receives in registration fees now exceeds the cost of the service.
