Customer Question

Hi there
My father is in residential care home. He owns a house with my Step Mother and they have tenant in common 50/50. Can our Step Mother rent the house out without our knowledge. Both my Brother & I are POA for our Dad.
Also we pay 50% of his pension to her towards the bills, should this still be the case if she is renting out.
Also is my Dad entitled to half of the rent.
Many thanks
