Thank you for your question.

A power of attorney is a device whereby you can look after your brother's affairs whilst he is alive but is unable to do it himself. It ends on death.

If you think you will have to look after your brothers affairs when he is alive he can make a new power of attorney of the old one is lost.

After his death his will takes effect and the power of attorney ends so ensure that he has a will.
