Legal Question

Asked on: 7/25/13, 9:03 am

Long story short: My mom passed away nearly 5 years ago. 10 days before she passed, her boyfriend, and a lawyer had her sign a will , power of attorney etc.

Estate is still not settled. I believe executor removed money from bank account when he was given power of attorney. There is a car, valued at $6000 at time of death that is now useless.

I have received . paperwork to sign, however the "bank statements" provided are excel spreadsheets created by the executor,

Can an essential "stranger" (no family relation) and a lawyer walk into a house 10 days before a person dies and have them sign a valid will? Who is liable for the lost valuation of the car, that could have been sold 5 years ago if estate was managed properly?
