Alabama Disclaimer of Interest

As part of the Alabama Code, the beneficiary of an interest in property may renounce the gift, either in part or in full (Ala. Code 43-8-290 to 43-8-298). Note that the option to disclaim is only available to beneficiaries who have not acted in any way to indicate acceptance or ownership of the interest ( 43-8-295).

The disclaimer must be in writing and include a description of the interest, a declaration of intent to disclaim all or a defined portion of the interest, and be signed by the disclaimant ( 43-8-293).

File the disclaimer within nine months of the transfer (e.g., the death of the creator of the interest) with the probate court of the county that has jurisdiction over proceedings regarding the estate of the deceased donor. In addition, deliver a copy of the disclaimer in person or send it by registered mail to any personal representative or other fiduciary of the decedent's estate ( 43-8-292(a)). If the transfer was enacted by an instrument other than a will, deliver a copy of the disclaimer to the trustee or the person who has legal title to or possession of the property ( 43-8-292(b)). If real property is involved, record a copy of the disclaimer in the office of the probate judge of the county in which the property or interest disclaimed is located ( 43-8-292(d)).

A disclaimer is irrevocable and binding for the disclaiming party and his or her creditors ( 43-8-294), so be sure to consult an attorney when in doubt about the drawbacks and benefits of disclaiming inherited property. If the disclaimed interest arises out of jointly-owned property, seek legal advice as well.

Toni C. said: Super impressed!! For me to get back my recorded document in one day was awesome. I needed it for a foreclosure and knew if I mailed it in to the Clerk's office I more than likely would not get it back in time. Also the fact that you had no problem with me having a one-time document to record is a plus. I will be using you in the future for my recording needs. Thank you.
