Power of Attorney question.
My Mum is in a care home I
took out LPOA health and finance some time ago before
she was diagnosed with early dementia , once my two brothers and
sister found out they all applied together for both
LPOAs, I told them mum had given me £5000.00 to make
sure she was buried when her time came, since then the three of them
have not been happy about this and they have taken mum to the bank
and told her to transfer £3000.00 to
each of them to there own bank accounts, so my questions are.
When Mum asked me to hold the money for her funeral she was in full
capacity I am also a joint account holder on mums accounts
is this OK ?
Her three other sibling some time later have taken her to
the bank when she was not in not in full capacity and mum
authorised the transfer from her account £3000.00 to each to them
(not convinced she knew what was happening)
I believed an attorney for finances can act while the
donor still has capacity and with the donors
consent, and any monies taken from the account
has to be used for the donor and not for themselves to do as they
If money is taken from mums account for the benefit of the 3 siblings
and not for mum is this a criminal offence and should I inform the
police or deal with this through solicitors or just make them
aware they have done wrong.
would be pleased to hear any legal or positive comments.
