Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Your sibling won't be entitled to get hold of any such Bank statements, as he has no legal right to see them.
I hope this assists. Please let me know if you require any further clarification.
Kind Regards

he says he is going to a solictor to see where my dads money went? my dad handled his own affairs until 6 mths ago, my sibling wants to know what he spent in past 8 yrs! i dont even know, i had POA since dec 2013 my dad died last month, i dont even know what his finances were past 8 yrs !

Expert:  Aston Lawyer replied 2 years ago.
Hi,
Well, no Bank will release your Dad's Bank statements to your brother or his Solicitor, as this information is confidential.
During the period you had POA, again, he is not entitled to see the statements- only if he issued Court proceedings against you for fraud would the statements need to be provided to him from you.
I hope this helps.
Kind Regards
