Its the fees to the Court of Protection to administer the new Living Power of Attorney thats a rip off

The previous Enduring Power of Attorney was easy and you only had a one off fee of £120 to pay the Court of Protection when you registered it

The registration for for Lasting Powers of Attorney have now been reduced to £120.

I think you can use a variety of methods to do an LPA from the off the shelf in WH Smiths for £15 ish through onlinemethods to using a professional will writer which would probably be much cheaper than the average solicitor.

There are many choices but not all are necessarily good options!

If your Father is still able to understand everything OK you can download the forms for free from Guardianship Office

Filling them in is fairly soimple

The cost comes when you register them to use them i think the fee is £120

You do not need Solicitors
