I am in a conundrum! I had POA of my aunt's financial and legal matters while she was in a care home. Her home was sold and she paid fully for her care. She passed away during the pandemic when everything was locked down. I informed the OPG and was told I no longer had POA. When I had POA I opened up accounts in my bank to deal with the selling of her house and to administer care home fees. The bank would not let me open an account in her name or jointly with mine so is in my name. In hindsight I should have just used her bank as they had me as a POA on her statements. When she died the bank transferred her money to the account I'd set up ( in my name). The issue is, is she has 2 sons with learning disabilities. One is under POA of the local authority, the other is in supported housing as he is unable to live independently. They are the next of kin legally now, but will lose all financial help from the council who will gladly take it I'm sure. I had no idea I would lose my POA once my Aunt died as I thought I could still administer the money and divide equally amongst the family. As the money is in my name do I have to do anything or can I just give out the money to the family and to charities? It is just sitting in accounts and doing nothing as I am afraid to touch it. Any advice/thoughts?
