1. Dear *****, once you register the Lasting Power of Attorney, you can sell these stocks and shares to enable you to get funds so as to be ready for when your elderly brother goes into a home. So, if you have no registered the LPA you should do so immediately. However, once you have registered the LPA, you should send a copy of it with a covering letter to Barclays with instructions to sell however much of the stocks and shares you wish to have sold. This will then enable you to sell the stocks and shares and realise the funds you need.
