If you have got a lasting power of attorney now, it does not give you the power to overturn the will. If you do not have a lasting power of attorney now, you would have to make an application to court to become what is called a deputy in order to be able to deal with your mother’s affairs. You can do this yourself although the paperwork is a minefield and the majority of people who start doing it themselves end up giving it to a solicitor. A solicitor will charge about £2000 and it takes several months to be completed.
Provided your mother was a full mental capacity when she wrote the will, even though her wishes may now have changed, the will is still valid.
