    What sort of rent agreement was there? Was it a lease for a certain period or a month-to-month rental? Who was the renter/lessee? Just your mother? Or multiple parties?

    You will have to review the power of attorney to see what powers it grants to you.

    You have not told us if your mother owns her manufactured home or rents it. If she owns it, eviction (if it actually has to be physically removed from the lot) will cause a lot of damage. If she does not own it and there's no expectation that she will move back, although an eviction will damage her credit, may result in a money judgment for her rent arrears, and she may owe additional money if she's on a lease with a fixed term extending into the future, the eviction can be expected to cover all tenants and occupants of the home. You haven't told us if your brother is a tenant or an occupant; if it's the latter you can explore your own rights to evict him given whatever powers are granted by the POA.

    If you are assuming the role of your mother's fiduciary, be sure not to create a huge liability for her by not handling the end of her tenancy in an appropriate manner.

    regardless of what it reads in the power of attorney, this is more of a lease related issue. If your mother is on the lease and the lease was never broken, then your mother is still on the hook.
