What is the California Disclaimer of Interest?

Use the disclaimer to renounce an interest in real property in California.

A beneficiary in California can disclaim a bequeathed asset or power. For a complete list, see Probate Code 267. A disclaimer, which must be in writing and signed by the beneficiary, allows that beneficiary to renounce his or her interest in the property. California statutes allow for the partial rejection of the interest, which must be clearly identified on the disclaimer.

Besides the beneficiary, state the name of the creator of the interest, as well as the next beneficiary to whom the interest will pass, e.g., the next person in line to inherit. In the case of real property, give the entire legal description of the land and provide recording information for the prior deed in order to avoid any problems in the chain of title.

A disclaimer is irrevocable and binding for anyone who makes a claim against the beneficiary, for example, potential creditors. It must be received within nine months after the decedent's death, the transfer, or the 21st birthday of the beneficiary (Probate Code 279) and is only valid if no actions have indicated acceptance of the property.

It must be filed with any of the following entities according to Probate Code 280(a): the superior court in the county where the estate is administered; the representative of the deceased or executor of the estate; the creator of the interest; or "any other person having custody or possession of or legal title to the interest." When in doubt as to the drawbacks and benefits of renouncing the property, consult with an attorney.

Review: Your website advertising was somewhat deceptive regarding doing a quitclaim on a name change. "If you are transferring the property to yourself under your new name, all you have to do is update the deed from your former name to your current one." This made this sound easy. But when I downloaded the material for my state, expecting to find an example, there was no example of how to do a name change quitclaim deed! I therefore had to figure this out myself. You might have provided a warning about certain uses that were not covered in the material so that people know ahead of time that the use they needed to know about wasn't covered in the material.

Name: Erik H.

Review: tl;dr - Bookmarked and anticipating using this site for years to come. My justification for rating 5/5 1. Provide intuitive method for requesting property records. 2. Cost for records *seems reasonable. 3. They clearly state that interested parties could gather these records at more affordable costs through the county (which was more confusing for an inexperienced person such as myself). I mean, I appreciate and respect this level of honesty. *I didn't shop around too much because it was difficult for me to find other services that could deliver CA property records.

Name: Jose G. C.

Review: It was OK but unfortunately useless. The jurisdictions are now requesting that documents such as Notices of Commencement not only be recorded at their offices, but also certified. This last service is not provided by Deeds, or at least I could not find it in your website and did not receive a response when I asked if you did. Thus, we are going back to traditional means of recording/certifying
