Like probate, conservatorship sales in California are regulated by Probate Code and supervised by the probate court.
The main difference between the two is that in a probate transaction the property owner is deceased; in conservatorship transactions the property owner – the Conservatee – is living. The Conservatee cannot care for themselves, so a Conservator is appointed by the court to care for the Conservatee and often their finances as well. The Conservator acts as fiduciary, and when necessary, with the court’s instruction, may sell the real property to raise funds for the Conservatee’s care.
