How do I apply to see the income and expenditure of the POA after the POA has ended?
I am hoping that someone can help me. My mother died in February of this year and her 3 surviving children are trying to sort out the estate. She did not leave a will. My brother held POA and now wants to be the administrator of the estate. I said that he can do that but I must see the accounts of money spent and income received by my mother during my brother’s tenure as the POA of my mother, which lasted for about 9 years.
My brother told me a few years back that he took money from my mother's bank account during the POA. I told him to put it back. I don’t know if he did or how much was taken. I think he should account for it but he will not show me how much.
I am wondering if there is any money left at all and would like to see what income was received and what was taken out. I think I am entitled to do so but I am not sure what is the best way. I am wondering if there is a mechanism that allows me to see what happened during the POA period without openly accusing him of any crime or further offending him too much. Can someone advise and signpost what I need to do?
Thank you for your time.
