Up to a million people could be owed refunds on their Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) fees.
Between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017, the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) overcharged for LPA applications.
A year ago the Ministry of Justice started to give refunds to people who had applied for LPAs between 2013 and 2017.
Up to 1 February this year 194,713 claimants had received refunds of more than £12m. However, it’s estimated that 800,000 people could still be eligible to claim.
