My brother and I have joint (not several) power of attorney under an EPA for our mother (who no longer has capacity, and is living in a care home). He has received a diagnosis that makes it quite likely he may die before she does. That would end the attorneyship. In that event, what could happen in terms of managing mum's money? Could I be made a deputy? Will the Court of Protection simply appoint some lawyer to take over and collect fat fees? What? What would you do? Would you call a lawyer first? Call the OPG first? My brother and I are also the nominated executors of our mother's will. What if he's not here then? What, if anything, should we do now?
