Dear Customer ,

Thank You for posting your probate law question today. I'm attorney Bill assisting you today with your question in relation to your power of attorney document.

SO long as the power of attorney was properly executed according to NC State laws the document is valid now until further declared void by the court.

The listed powers in the POA give you the legal right to do all those things, including managing the properties if stated therein.

If you have a copy of the POA you can send it to me for an extra review service, just let me know ?

Because you have the legal right to enforce all those powers in the POA , your niece is acting outside the law until the court grants her the claimed declaration that she insists in.

Until then you need to contact law enforcement for any illegal activity that your niece is engaging in.

In relation to the properties and locks this may amount to : tress pass, criminal tampering, or burglary.

We are here to help, so please follow up with me as you may require.

I'm an independent legal expert and rely on your positive feedback today to get a credit for my time.

You do this by rating 5*****, 4**** or better.

FIVE STARS is much appreciated.

Best
