  1. yes, if the power of attorney is properly executed and adjudicated , he can on behalf of your mother sell the house; there must be specific words in the power of attorney giving your brother the power to sell the house. He need not even tell your mother or you or anyone else.



  2. yes if the power of attoney document is empowering the POA agent to sell.

    but you have to understand that the POA is granted only to act on behalf of the PRINCIPAL. the amount realised by selling will be to the principal. so the sale proceeds need to be handedover to the principal i.e your mother.
