Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Can you prove that he has been letting the property and not using the money to benefit your mother?
Have you been taking your mother out?
On what basis are you being stopped from taking her out - the other family members have no more rights than You?
Who else is in the "family"
You have said that your brother does not hold a power of attorney and has not yet been appointed as your mother's deputy.
The two closest relatives are you and your brother and accordingly you both have equal rights to decide upon your mothers care at the moment.
On that basis you are entitled to challenge the Home and point out that no one has the right to decide whether or not or take your mother out UNLESS the doctor has said she is not fit enough to go out.
If you have been served with the applictaion to be appointed as Deputy that your brother has filed then you are entitled to write to the Court of Protection and express your concerns about the way matters have been handled until now.
It does not matter that you do not have proof - you can simple express your concerns and allow them to investigate
Please ask if you need further details
Have you actually received notice of his intention to apply?
I suspect that there is a chance that a Court Appointed Deputy may well be the only answer - but you can at least try!
That is fine
