(b) A custodian may be held personally liable:
(1) On a contract properly entered into in the custodial capacity if the custodian fails to reveal that capacity and to identify the custodianship in the contract; or
(2) For an obligation arising from control of custodial property or for a tort committed during the custodianship if the custodian is personally at fault.
