59-3083.Reports and accountings. (a) The guardian or conservator appointed by the court pursuant to either K.S.A. 59-3057 or 59-3067, and amendments thereto, annually, and at other times as the court may specify, shall file with the court, in such form as the supreme court may require by rule, or in the absence of such rule or in supplement thereto, as the court may require, reports and accountings concerning the status of the ward or conservatee, the estate of the ward or conservatee, and the actions of the guardian or conservator.

(b) The guardian or conservator, or both, shall file a special report or accounting with the court upon the occurrence of any of the following:

(1) A change of address of the guardian or conservator;

(2) a change of residence or placement of the ward or conservatee;

(3) a significant change in the health or impairment of the ward or conservatee;

(4) the acquisition by the ward of any real property, or the receipt or accumulation of other property or income by the ward or by the guardian on behalf of the ward, which causes the total value of the ward's estate to equal or exceed $10,000;

(5) the death of the ward or conservatee; or

(6) a change in the circumstances of the guardian, conservator, ward or conservatee that may constitute a conflict of interest. A conflict of interest occurs where the guardian or conservator has some personal or agency interest that could be perceived as self-serving or adverse to the position or best interest of the ward or conservatee.

(c) Upon the death of the guardian or conservator, or upon the guardian or conservator being adjudged in this state to be an adult with an impairment in need of a guardian or a conservator, or both, or being similarly adjudged in any other state, a representative on behalf of the guardian or conservator, as the court may allow, shall file a final report or accounting on behalf of that guardian or conservator.

(d) If the guardian or conservator is under contract with the Kansas guardianship program, the court shall order that the guardian or conservator file with the Kansas guardianship program a copy of each report or accounting filed with the court.

(e) At the termination of the guardianship, or upon the resignation, impairment, death or removal of the guardian, the guardian or a representative on behalf of the guardian, as the court may allow, shall file with the court a final report concerning the status of the ward and of the actions and recommendations of the guardian.

(f) At the termination of the conservatorship, or upon the resignation, impairment, death or removal of the conservator, the conservator or a representative on behalf of the conservator, as the court may allow, shall file with the court a final report and accounting concerning the status of the conservatee, of the conservatee's estate, and of the actions and recommendations of the conservator. The conservator, the conservator's estate and the conservator's surety shall not be finally discharged until such final report and accounting is filed, and the accounting allowed and settled as provided for in K.S.A. 59-3086, and amendments thereto. The conservator's surety, in the surety's discretion, may file any report or accounting it deems appropriate, or perform the duties of the conservator upon the resignation, death, impairment or removal of the conservator, subject to the authority of the standby conservator, if a standby conservator has been appointed by the court pursuant to K.S.A. 59-3074, and amendments thereto.
