Conservator

By on October 8, 2019

A conservator is a guardian, preserver, receiver or protector appointed by a court to manage and administer a person’s assets as the legal owner is incapable of doing it himself.

Saying that, one does not need to be suffering from disability, whether temporary or permanent, to have a conservator legally appointed.

Such arrangements of conservatorship does not prevent the person from entering into contracts.

The conservator would also be able to sell a property as long as the court approves of it.

While there are various obvious similarities between conservatorship and power of attorney, there is a key difference between the two.

The latter is an arrangement by the owner in an able capacity before his or her incapacity to manage assets.

The former is ordered by a court upon petition that an individual is no longer competent to manage his or her assets.
