As appointed Conservator, with the wards going in to Assisted Living at the end of the month, it has become apparent that the personal property (home & vehicle) belonging to the wards needs to be sold. I have the forms needed for the probate court, BUT have some questions. 1) The way it's worded, does the home need to be listed prior to petitioning the court to approve the sale? 2) Same with the car, do I need to have an offer on the table prior to filing the petition? 3) When the home and vehicle are sold, do the funds get written to them? I do NOT want any funds written out to me, even though I'll be the person signing the legal documents for the wards. I would think that would be a nightmare at tax time?
