vcat sister lawyer said no poa or epoa was ever used.
they also said after dad died the house was a gift, nothing in the sales paper work for the house. they said dad said it a year before, they said there was a letter but we have never seen it. also this year for the ivo case at county court she said dad singed somthing the day he died so now there is to things dad wrote but we have not seen.
my sister was using ivo's on me as she was in charge of dads will and i was the only person in dads will because she said she brought and ownd dads house before he died.
iv got the house paper work, cheque signed by sister using poa taking $17,000 i can show this was paid to the sale of the house.
