(b) Subject to the requirements of general statutes governing the filing or recordation of documents of title to land or other property, letters of conservatorship and orders terminating conservatorships, shall be filed or recorded in each registry district in which the protected person owns real property to give record notice of title as between the conservator and the protected person.
