Conservator Agreement

Conservatorship is a legal term referring to the legal responsibilities of a conservator over the affairs of a person who has been deemed unable to act on his or her own behalf. A request to provide a conservator/guardianship agreement occurs when a transaction is handled by someone other than the named customer. This can occur in transactions that involve:
  • Acting and providing signatures on behalf of an individual who is not yet of legal age, as defined by the state
  • Representing a customer who is not legally qualified to render decisions or is unable to attend counseling or sign loan documents
The conservator/guardian must provide legal documents to verify that he or she has the authority to obligate the customer. This is typically accomplished with a copy of court documents that verify either:
  • Durable power of attorney (must be specifically designed to survive incapacity)
  • Legal authority to act as conservator or guardian
To avoid delays in processing your loan, please:
  • Make sure the copies you send are legible.
  • Do not include documents that have been altered with correction fluid or by other means.
  • Submit the entire requested document and include all pages (even blank ones).
