I. Understanding the Costs of Making an LPA

  1. Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) Registration Fee: The OPG charges a fee for registering each LPA form. As of the time of writing, the fee is £82 per LPA. If you decide to create both types of LPAs (Financial and Property Affairs, Health and Welfare), separate registration fees will apply.
  2. Certificate Provider Fee: To ensure the validity of the LPA, a Certificate Provider is required to confirm your understanding and capacity. The fee for this service can vary depending on the chosen provider.
