How does your sister have your mother's accounts? Where is your mother?
I see. That makes sense. Well if she does not have formal authority to act in this way I would be minded to get a solicitor to write to her formally advising her that she is acting without authority and that you seek to see that the accounts/statements as a next of kin. You can also involve the local authority if you consider that she is acting inappropriately. Happy to discuss and please rate positive.
I see. The LA should really help in a situation such as this. I would advise that you may wish to get your local councillor or MP to try and exert some pressure on them. The difficulty for you as you state is funding. A solicitors letter would normally expect to cost about £100 and will often resolve the issue. Happy to discuss and please rate positive
From a police perspective she has not necessarily broken the law. I would normally have thought that if there is no formal document then adult services would be interested in such maters. There may well be court of protection issues and to that end you should escalate this.
So what happened to the proceedings
can you explain
Ok then if this is the case and you have proof you really need to provide that proof to either social services or the police. I know what you have said about them not being interested in the past. Thus you should contact your MP and see if he can exert some pressure. Otherwise for legal action - you will need to spend some money (and I understand the difficulties) in getting a solicitors letter to them. I hope that this helps and please rate positive for my time.
