Conservatorship

A conservator is appointed by the court to manage the property and financial affairs of a ward. It is common for a guardian and conservator to be the same person but there is a big difference between the two positions. Some examples of the conservator’s trustee responsibilities include income, real property, and bank accounts. The conservator must use reasonable care by using their skill and knowledge to manage and invest the estate as a prudent investor would.
