Protective Proceedings

ORS 125.420
Power of conservator over property of protected person

A conservator shall take possession of all the property of substantial value of the protected person, and of rents, income, issues and profits from those properties whether accruing before or after the appointment of the conservator. The conservator shall also take possession of all proceeds from the sale, mortgage, lease or other disposition of property of the protected person. The conservator may permit the protected person to retain possession and control of property and funds for living requirements as appropriate to the needs and capacities of the protected person. The title to all property of the protected person is in the protected person and not in the conservator. [1995 c.664 §38]
