Court of Protection to Refund Overcharged Fees

Following the successful refund scheme for registration fees in relation to Lasting Powers of Attorney, the Ministry of Justice have now announced that some Court of Protection fees are also to be reduced.  An internal review found that the fees are higher than necessary to recover court costs. Therefore, a refund scheme will be set up to reimburse people the amounts they have been over-charged. Details of the scheme are yet to be published.
