Refund of Deputyship fees 

On 4 October 2019 the Ministry of Justice launched a new refund scheme.

The Office of the Public Guardian has decided that it needs to refund some of the fees it charged in deputyship matters for the period 1 April 2008 and 31 March 2015.

Some refunds will be issued automatically and some will need to be applied for, e.g. by the deputy themselves or executors in an estate.
