Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
A Power of Attorney is only valid during the party's lifetime. Upon death, the Attorney has no legal right or power to carry on dealing with the party's affairs. Instead, that power rests with whoever has been appointed by the deceased as Executor under their Will. If no Will was made, it is up to the next of kin to apply to become Administrator of the Estate.
I hope this assists and answers your question.
