I am 56 years old.I had 3 elder brothers and 5 sisters. Out of this, 1 elder brother and 2 sisters are not alive (the expired brother and sisters have their families).
My mother expired in 1970. My father bought a house in my mother's name when she was alive.All my brothers and sisters are married and and settled. My father expired in 2004. Now we(9 members) want to sell the house and share the money.To avoid getting Heirs-Certificate, we want to sell the house by executing a power of attorney.The eldest brother says that the power of attorney should be written in his name so that he can sell and share the money . But the other members(including me ) are not ready to believe him.Our apprehension is that he may not share the money as promised by him.Our house- deed document is in the custody of my eldest brother.My question is :'' Can the power of attorney be written in the names of 3 brothers jointly?''
I will be thankful if I get a legal opinion.
