Sorry for your loss, the darkness of death is something that we must all one day face with open eyes.
Firstly, I would suggest that you stop being desperate. Because projecting desperation only leaves you open to predators and sx bags that are only too eager to take your money.
Secondly, educate yourself. learn all you can about Powers of Attorney, in general, as some do not expire with the person's death others are passed down to their donors.
Thirdly, people do this type of thing all the time. It is not new. Recording the price of a property as well below its real value is illegal. On the othr hand accountants fiddle with the books, so, best to keep yourself well informed and evaluate the emotional costs to any potential benefits you might gain.
All the best always,
Eileen, you state that you are a beneficiary so I assume that you are in
your aunt's will.
As your aunt is still alive you cannot lodge a caveat as you have no
caveatable interest. This is because a will has no legal effect until the
death of the testator (the person who made the will).
Having said that, the attorney (the person exercising the power) must act
with honesty and integrity, and must never act in their own interest.
You must see a lawyer ASAP. An injunction would be possible but as there
appears to be no innocent third parties involved the court can always
order the transaction to be set aside.
You are probably looking at two days for court. One for the interim
injunction and one for the permanent injunction. Costs could probably be
in the range of $5000 - $10,000 but remember the losing side pays most
of these and you have a good case. You may also be able to get no win no
fee. But see a lawyer now.
