Valid Power of Attorney
My wifes grandfather has alzheimers, and her father, his son had a brain anuerism and is a druggie, making him incompetent. Her great uncle took a General Power of Attorney and placed her grandfather in a nursing home.
My wife has been completely shut off from her inheritance that her grandfather promised. He promised land, and his house to take care off should anything happen. Her great uncle is thinking of selling the land and house now, and says that he will ”keep her in mind”. The POA was signed while her grandfather was no longer capable, and has a provision in case he becomes senile that POA stays with my wifes great uncle.
Does my wife have any recourse of getting her inheritance, or is she shut out? Her great uncle got POA as soon as my wife made the comment that she was going to get one. But he did not have it filed for another three years. He also moved her grandfather from the nursing home without notifying her. Is there anything she can do?
