1. Can you better explain the situation. Has the person who has made the Power of Attorney made a will? Are you the son of this person who has made the will? What the the Person with the power of Attorney (donee) doing in relation to the affairs of the person who gave the Power of Attorney (donor)? Do you believe that a person holding an Enduring Power of Attorney can change a will already made?
2. At the outset, unless, your grandfather has actually made a will himself and has shown it to your aunt, there is no guarantee that what your aunt says is correct. YOur aunt, as holder of a Power of Attorney has no power to decide what is in a will or what is not. So, although your aunt is making assertions as to what is going to happen, there is no guarantee that this is correct. She can have no input into what is going to happen, even if she does have a Power of attorney. Secondly, even if your grandfather has written his son, your father, out of the will, your father can still make a claim under the 1975 Inheritance (Rights of Dependents) Act, to a share in the estate if he can show he was a dependent and was not properly provided for.
