A Conservatorship is a legal process in which the court appoints a person to make financial decisions for another person who is determined to be financially incapable to make those decisions. A conservatorship proceeding is a different legal proceeding than guardianship; it may be done independent from or jointly with a guardianship proceeding.

More briefly, conservatorship is the legal right given to a person to manage the property and financial affairs of a person deemed incapable of doing that for himself or herself.

Sometimes real property in a conservatorship must be sold and the terms of the sale are like those of a probate sale. All properties in a conservatorship require court confirmation.

The Sanborn Team has been selling houses for conservatorships for over 30 years, and getting top dollar for our clients. To learn more about us and our Probate listings, please visit our website at: www.sanbornteam.com. Or call us at 310-777-2858 anytime!
