What Is Conservatorship Real Estate?

Put simply, conservatorship real estate is any piece of real estate property that’s held in a conservatorship. A conservatorship is a legal arrangement where a court appoints an individual – called a conservator – to manage personal affairs, finances, or property for someone unable to care for their own financial affairs – called the conservatee. So while the conservatee technically owns the property, the conservator has the right (with court approval) to sell the property. Conservatorships are generally used when other legal arrangements, such as durable power of attorney, won’t work for some reason.

How to Buy Conservatorship Real Estate

Because of the more complex ownership and legal powers arrangement in a conservatorship, buying real property held in a conservatorship presents a few extra legal hurdles compared normal property. In many ways, the process of buying conservatorship property is similar to buying probate real estate.

First of all, the conservator needs court approval to make any major transactions over conservatorship property, and that includes the sale of real estate. Conservatorship real estate is usually sold as-is and without contingencies, which is important to note as a buyer. You’ll need to be extra careful in doing your due diligence and should always hire a professional inspector to ensure the property meets your standards and preferences before buying. As a final note, you should have both the property and any loan you take out to purchase the property prequalified, which means ensuring the lender is comfortable making the loan on the specific property you intend to buy.
