Real Estate Sales for Guardianships

Often, a guardian of property is called upon to handle real estate sales on behalf of their wards–and that responsibility can be overwhelming without experienced guidance and support.

A Complete Range of Support for Guardianship Sales

By Howard Morrel & Leslie Hirsch

Guardians play a vital role in managing the affairs and assets of individuals who are unable to do so themselves due to incapacity or legal incapability. Often, a guardian of property is called upon to handle real estate sales on behalf of their wards–and that responsibility can be overwhelming without experienced guidance and support.

Guardians need to be aware that a good deal of paperwork and legal process may be required as part of any sale. Your broker may need to be court-approved, and you may need to file a variety of notifications to the ward, their attorney, and relatives. A court appearance may also be needed, and a judge may be involved along many of the steps. Failure to take the proper legal steps can lead to serious consequences.

We often work with high net-worth and celebrity clients in this realm, and coordinate closely with family attorneys using the greatest of discretion.
