Indiana Disclaimer of Interest

Under the Indiana Uniform Disclaimer of Property Interests Act, found at IC 32-17.5, the beneficiary of an interest in property may renounce the gift, either in part or in full (IC 32-17.5-3-1, 4). 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 (IC 32-17.5-8-2).

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 in front of a notary (IC 32-17.5-3-3).

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 the court having jurisdiction to appoint such a person (IC 32-17.5-7). In the case of real property, acknowledge the disclaimer as is required for a deed and record it in the county where the property is located. In addition, deliver a copy of the disclaimer to the person or legal entity with current custody or possession of the property.

A disclaimer is irrevocable and binding for the disclaiming party, 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.

FRANK O. said: Easy to download and use the forms, however two forms needed for my county recording were not included.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback Frank. We'll look into finding and including the additional supplemental documents. Sometimes supplemental documents have to be generated by the county's system, specific to the transaction.


Robert T. said: Perfect. Downloaded the forms with no issues, filled them out, had them notarized and recorded all in just a few hours (most of that time was spent at the recorder's office). Highly recommend.
