In order to ensure that your wishes are carried out and your property and possessions are bequeathed as you would have wanted, it is important that you have a Will in place.
We work with local solicitors who will discuss your requirements and write your Will to make sure that your wishes are clearly stated. Your friends and family are your priority. However, after making provisions for them, would you consider supporting Age UK Hillingdon in your will?
Our straight forward Will Writing Service is free but we appreciate any donation you feel able to give.
Lasting Power of Attorney refunds.
The Office of the Public Guardian for England and Wales – the public body that records lasting powers of attorney - is only supposed to charge fees so as to recover its operational costs.Yet up until April 2017 it charged a £110 fee to register an LPA and due to a surge in registrations coupled with increasing efficiencies it is estimated to have collected in an £89 million surplus. As a result, those who applied to register their LPAs since 2013 paid too much and are entitled to a partial refund.The OPG reduced the fees for applying to register LPAs (and enduring power of attorneys) from £110 to £82 in April 2017.And it aims to increase the number of people making LPAs next year so it is a possibility the fee could come down further.Details on how to claim a refund are available here: https://www.gov.uk/power-of-attorney-refund
