If you have determined that selling your ward's/protected person's personal property is in their best interest, you can begin to familiarize yourself with the process using this information, taken from the "Frequently Asked Questions..." section of our "Resources for Private Guardians and Conservators" page:

I want to ask the court to sell a car, house, property, etc. How do I do that without an attorney?

When selling ward property it is important to avoid even the appearance of conflicts of interest. Do not sell a ward’s property to a family member or friend (or anyone) for less than market value, always have an independent assessment done of the value of the property.
