Clarification on rights of POA holder after principal's death

POA was given for sale of property by Principal to near blood relative (who is also one of the legal heirs). After death of Principal can POA holder be able to sell the property legally or the property should revert automatically to all the legal heirs (or will if available). Also please please enlighten me on the legal heirs rights in the correct order - children / parents / siblings etc in percentage etc.

No, after the death of the executor, the Power of Attorney Holder is having no right and authority to act upon the Power of Attorney given to him during the life time of the executor. The rights given under the Power of Attorney survives till the life time of the executor, unless it is not revoked earlier. Moreover, after the death of the executor, his property will devolves equally to his legal heirs. All the first class legal heirs shall get equal rights into the property of the deceased.
