On occasion, property may need to be sold which is subject to a “Conservatorship” or a “Guardianship.” A Conservatorship is a legal concept where a “Guardian” or “Conservator” is appointed by the Court to manage the financial affairs and/or daily life of another. The “Conservatee” is the person determined by the Court to be unable to protect and manage their own personal care or financial affairs, or both. 

A “Conservator of the Estate” is a person who handles the Conservatee’s financial matters, such as paying bills and collecting a person’s income, if the Court determines the Conservatee cannot perform those functions. A “Conservator of the Person” is a person appointed by the Court that cares for and protects an individual when the Court determines that the individual cannot provide for their own care.
