The durable power of attorney is void upon death. Therefore, nothing can be done using the durable power of attorney for financial purposes in regard to any real estate. See an attorney for probating the estate.

No, a power of attorney terminates upon death. All further transactions will have to be made under powers granted by a will or trust instrument. If no such document exists then the estate will have to be probated so that title may be transferred by order of the Court. I hope this helps.
