I talk to my father once a week over the phone he lives at my sisters house. He does not ring me as he has no phone of his own. We exchange birthday and Christmas presents. My sister organizes presents for everyone for him but not my children or grand children. She has had control of his money since my mother died in 2001. Her son in law has put a lot of his money into shares in approx. 2004. My father tells me my sister deals with all his fiancés. Last time I checked she had not applied for power of eterny last summer she and her husband are executors of his will. I don't know what she has made him sign regarding his fiancés. I am left out of family functions talks a etc
I think he does have a will. I can't I check. He is having a stomach scan this morning. He has a lot of minor problems but I am not told by anyone else. I found out this morning when I rang him. He is in an out of hospital but again I don't get told till he tells me after.
what happens to any money in the joint account should my father die
Will the bank be obliged to give me details of this account.
If my father needs my sister to have an unregistered power of attorney and has done so for the past five years and have complete control of his money how can he possibly fill in necessary details to open an account. Would the bank be liable here?
