Each of the movable and immovable assets, if any, must be listed in detail:

  1. For a movable asset, description, characteristics and identification of this asset plus its value.
  2. For a real estate property, location, address, real estate registration number, No., etc., the following information is required and the number of the cadastral certificate.
  3. The guardian may support such inventory by attaching public deeds, certificates of tradition or any document that proves that the minor or person with disabilities is the owner and holder of the movable or immovable property.
  4. The curator will also include the value of each of them. In the case of personal property, an appraisal specifying the price in commerce, and in the case of real estate, the value of the cadastral appraisal is taken.
  5. In the event that none of these assets exist, the curator will leave a record of this.
