Resolved Question:

My mother has just died. Before her death she gave power of attorney to one of her carers. I believe that this carer has manipulated my mother and turned her against me. The carer is refusing to give me details about my mother's. She apparently died in Jamaica. I cant get any facts from the hospitals where she supposedly died. How can I get the information from the carer.

The carer is a distant cousin. I believe also that my mother has named this individual as her next of kin. How can I challenge this and assume control of my mother's estate. I live in the UK and I have an older brother who lives in Jamaica. My mother owns land in Jamaica and has the deeds to a property that my brother lives in and I suspect that the carer want to get control of the land and property in Jamaica and any monies that may be in my mother's e.g. Savings, pension and ISA.

You have not answered my questions fully. I.E. how do I go about overriding the carer being named as next of kin both here in the UK an in Jamaica. How can I block the carer's access to my mum's estate, especially her bank account here in the UK. How do I go about being recognised as her next of kin.
