Colorado Disclaimer of Interest

Under the Colorado statutes, the beneficiary of an interest in property may renounce the gift, either in part or in full (Uniform Disclaimer of Property Interests Act, Col. Rev. Stat. 15-11-1201 to 1218). 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 (Col. Rev. Stat. 15-11-1213)

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 (Col. Rev. Stat. 15-11-1205 (3)).

Deliver the disclaimer within nine months of the transfer (e.g., the death of the creator of the interest) to the personal representative of the decedent's estate, or file it with the court who has jurisdiction to appoint such a person (Col. Rev. Stat. 15-11-1212 (3)). In the case of real property, record a copy of the disclaimer in the office of the clerk and recorder of the county in which the real estate is located (Col. Rev. Stat. 15-11-1212 (15)).

A disclaimer is irrevocable and binding for the disclaiming party and his or her creditors, 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.

john m. said: its a bit confusing for a novice computer user. I would prefer to print out the forms, fill them out on paper, then attach them to an email to discuss the accuracy of the forms with a friend, and then take the completed forms to the County office to be recorded
