Customer Question

My brother lives in Adelaide. And has Parkinsons decease. His partner has got power of Attorney. Also my son lives in Brisbane. And also has power of attorney. We are concerned that his partner is using my brothers money for her family. Should both powers of attorney have a legal right to know what the other one is spending.

Good Afternoon
My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question.
If she is using the funds for her own benefit and her family she is in breach of the law.
Someone is going to have to apply to have her removed and if your brother has the capacity to do so he can terminate it. If not it has to go to court.
If they are joint Attorneys then they have a right to access the accounts and question them.
But to stop her it has to go to court if your brother does not have the capacity to terminate it.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance.
If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.
