Hi

My mum sadly passed away recently.

My sister and I, who had lasting power of attorney, were in the process of selling her house and had agreed a sale but not exchanged.

However, my solicitor is saying that the Power of Attorney is no longer valid as from my mum's death and so we can't proceed with the sale of the property until probate has been agreed. It was suggested that we could rent the property to the prospective buyers until probate agreed but I'm thinking that if we haven't got the authority to sell the place surely we haven't got the authority to rent it either.

Any advice you could give me regarding this situation would be much appreciated.
