Upon acquiring the intestate property of your deceased mother, you become the absolute owner of the property and you can transact with it in any manner including giving power of attorney to an agent for dealing with the property in such further manner you desire so. However, your wife has no such rights over this property hence she cannot execute any power of attorney on this issue.
