A: therr are not enough details of your case for a full analysis. For example, what does the power of attorney cover. Is your mother mentally competent now. Who are the owners of the house. Who are the heirs of your mother. What other assets does your mother have. Is she getting any medicaid benefits. Depending on what the answers are to those questions, you may or may not have right to the house. There are also various ways to try and have the house pass down to you. You will need to discuss your case with an attorney.
