Question regarding Fathers estate.

My Father passesd away last Nov. My brother has power of attorny over my mother who is in a home with Alzheimers. My father told me that his wish was that the proceeds of his house be divided up immediately among my sibblings after his death. My mothers pension more than covered the costs of the nursing home and she also has RIIFS. The house was sold prior to his death and the money invested. My brother told me that any money from the home could not be accesed until all my fathers affairs and taxes were put in order. He then said that the bank had to settle all his investments and put them into a joint account with my mother and brother. He is now saying that we cannot touch any of the money until my Mother passes as per a new lawyer and that accesing any money from the sale of the house would be illegal. He has advised me that should I require money I can borrow from the estate with interest for investment purpose only or to invest. My question  is this in fact correct. Thanks in advance.
