I was my aunts POA 1993 however cousin from Sunshine Coast

Customer Question

I was my aunts POA 1993 however cousin from Sunshine Coast slipped in and unknown to me became POA.
My aunt now 95 and was placed in nursing home app. 6 weeks ago
I was told that the house was sold and to pick up my belongings
My aunt has complained to me on the phone that the room is very small and she had paid a lot of money?
I feel that the POA had a grudge with me as I was willed the home.
The home has been in Oehlman name from sale of the home to my grandfather 1920.
I saw a lawyer and cost $660 and I was told I should have come to him 12 months ago.
I believe the aunt has been mistreated and is not been given a fare deal as to whT she though she was paying for

Hello
Well at this stage I would agree with the solicitor you went to see.

She is now 95 and in a home, the capacity of her mental state is now questionable.

If the home is small is the only concern, then there is little to argue here sadly.

I suggest though you may have a claim against the home if they are not providing a service promised.

It would be on the cusp of elder abuse if that is the case, however, again if the above is the only grievance, then there is not much of an argument.
