Delaware Disclaimer of Interest

Delaware Disclaimer of Property Interest

Under the Delaware Code, the beneficiary of an interest in property may disclaim the gift, either in part or in full (12 Del. C. 601 to 617, Delaware Disclaimer Act). 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 ( 614).

The document 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 ( 605 (c)).

Within nine months of the transfer (e.g., the death of the creator of the interest), deliver the document to the personal representative of the decedent's estate or the trustee. In addition, file it with the court that has jurisdiction over proceedings regarding the administration of the estate ( 612 (b)). If real property is involved, have document acknowledged as a deed and record a copy of it with the register of deeds in the county where the property is located in order to establish general validity ( 613).

A disclaimer is irrevocable and binding for the disclaiming party and his or her creditors ( 605 (e)), so be sure to consult an attorney when in doubt about the drawbacks and benefits. If the interest arises out of jointly-owned property, seek legal advice as well.

Martin P. said: The DEEDs website is very easy to navigate and find the required documents. I have not yet had an opportunity to review the documents I purchased and downloaded. That is the reason I have assigned a rating of four stars. I fully hope that can raise my rating to five stars after I've used those documents.

Linda C. said: If I hadn't spent my career as an escrow officer (albeit in another state), I may have had a hard time figuring out exactly which deed I needed and how to prepare them, even with the back-up informational, how-to pdf documents, without an attorney. My experience speaks to how much the general public doesn't understand and how confusing it can be. Nonetheless, the access to so many documents at a fairly reasonable cost, the basic how-to docs made available along with the purchased doc makes all the difference. I appreciate having such things available to the public. Many thanks.

David M. said: Why is Dade County not listed for the Lady Bird Deed?

Reply from Staff: Because on November 13, 1997, voters changed the name of the county from Dade to Miami-Dade.
