Absolutely not. If the authorization does not state he gives up ownership
in the land (he needs to read the authorization carefully) then he retains ownership even though he might be granting them the legal right to repair the property, manage the property and even sell the property, but in the event of sale he would still be entitled to his share.
What he has to be careful of is he is not giving them a right to sell the land without written notice to him PRIOR to sale. This way he can protect his interest in the land and when it sells he can get his share of the compensation.
However, a general authorization to manage and control land would not give up his ownership rights. He just needs to read the agreement carefully to make sure they are not trying to slip something by him, because sometimes cagey relatives will try to pull a fast one on inherited land and they can even sometimes insert fees in there to make him pay for them managing the land, so this agreement needs to be read carefully and written specifically to protect your father.
