Are there any recurring fees involved?

No. Nothing to cancel, no memberships, no recurring fees.

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.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

Response was timely, even though unsuccessful in locating a requested deed. Deeds very courteously and professionally cancelled my order and cancelled its charge to my credit card.

Was a bit skeptical because I'd never heard of it, but just got something submitted and confirmed recorded in less than 24 hrs. UI could use some work but other than that, straightforward and works!

Great service - it was my first time using the service and really recommend it. Due to COVID-19, my County Recorder's Office is closed and I was able to create the document using their vast templates, notarize it, and upload it into the system. The recording process took about 7 working days which is not bad considering that most people are working remotely. I will share this website and its many resources with my relatives and friends.

Thank you Griselle, glad we could help.
