Power of Attorney – Where to go
Where would a person go to apply for or provide the paperwork to become Power of Attorney for an elderly, disabled parent? This is for Westchester County, specifically Yonkers, NY.
Selling a property when there is no power of attorney
I am one of five siblings whose mother is incompetent. I believe there is no power of attorney. She is currently living with one sibling who has not paid taxes on her property or his own since 1997. He has told his siblings he would be taking care of this when we found out a few weeks ago but has not. Both houses are still on the anticipated auction list; soon to be put on confirmed auction. If we can arrange payments of the tax liens on my mother’s property, would siblings be able to sell property without power of attorney or do we need to wait until it becomes part of her estate? Also, what would it take to force the sibling in control to reveal all her financial records to the other four? He is thankfully taking fairly good care of her, however, he refuses any outside help, nursing home for mom,or help with paying bills, etc. I don’t know if he has been paying her other bills, but he has been handling her finances for about 15 years. Answers to my questions and any other advice would be greatly appreciated.
Executor of Moms Will
I am the executor of my Mothers will,she passed away on 9/27/08.I noticed with all the paper work I had to do that my sister was using my mothers check book and credit card.My mother was dieing of cancer and was in and out of the hospital.Also the last 6 weeks of her life ,hospice was involved to keep mom out of pain.It got to the point she could not make any decisions with all the pain meds she was on.When I asked my sister why she was using moms checks and credit card,she told me Mom said it was o-kay.I cannot ask my Mother because she passed away.My sister said that she has a witness saying she could sign Moms name on personal checks and moms credit card.My sister did not have power of attorney to do anything.If my sister said she had a witness to sign moms name ,is that hear-say.I told her what she did was wrong .To me that is considered forgery of checks and credit cards.Thank You
Changes to Revocable Living Trust
After 5 years of 5 siblings being the beneficeries of their fathers Trust the 1 sibling who was not only the trustee but also had power of attorney took the father to the lawyer 5 months before his death knowing he was terminally ill and legally blind had him sign a 1 page amendment stating she was to be the sole beneficery and dropping the other 4 siblings.. The lawyer just simply notorized the father’s signature. Should there have been other witnesses to this and also should the other beneficeries have been notified of these drastic changes?
