Mental Capacity Act Fees

The Government response to the consultation on proposed fees for the new Court of Protection and the Office of the Public Guardian was published on 30 April. The response sets out the fees proposed for a range of services including £150 for registering a Lasting Power of Attorney. Other fees include charges for registering an Enduring Power of Attorney, making an application to the court and for an oral hearing by the court, and for the setting up and supervision of court-appointed deputies. The consultation showed wide support for proposed exemptions for people who would suffer financial hardship if they had to pay the fees. The response document Court of Protection and Office of the Public Guardian Fees is available on www.dca.gov.uk/consult/court-protection-rules/cp2306.htm. Those parts of the Act pertaining to the Court of Protection, the Office of the Public Guardian and Lasting Powers of Attorney will come into effect in October 2007. For the suggested fees see July [2007] Fam Law.
