Does the father want the son to still have authority under the POA?
I cannot speak to you on the telephone as the rules of my law society prohibit that as you are not my client. May I continue by posting? If so I will answer now.
Just to start a POA is short form for Power of Attorney!
And the basic answer is that the son who is appointed under the POA most assuredly cannot change the Will but what I wanted to know is whether the father wants to change his POA.
I don't think you saw my reply. Here it is again:
Can you deal with the father directly?No, the son cannot change the Will.
The POA becomes void at death so that once the father dies the POA is irrelevant and the executor of the Will takes over and follows the terms of the Will.
The POA should be listening to the father if the father is competent.
So you should speak to the father.
You are very welcome.
