My father passed away in 2015. He had apartments, and a house that he owned. Since his passing no one has said anything about what happened to any of it. His cousin became his power of attorney years after his stroke which left him not able to talk, walk, or anything. My question is would my brother and I be entitled to any of his properties? Is it too late for us to look into this situation?
You've waited three years to ask?
The first question is how your father's cousin got power of attorney over a man who had a stroke. But I would bet that by the time your dad died, he didn't own much of anything, and that it was all in his cousin's name by then.
Start with property records and see who owns the properties now.
