As part of the Kansas Statutes, the beneficiary of an interest in property may renounce the gift, either in part or in full (K.S.A. 59-2291 to 59-2294). Note that the option to disclaim is not available to beneficiaries who have acted in any way to indicate acceptance or ownership of the property (K.S.A. 59-2293 (b)); nor is it available to welfare recipients (K.S.A. 39-709).
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 (K.S.A. 59-2291 (b)).
File and record the disclaimer within nine months of the transfer (e.g., the death of the creator of the interest or other qualifying event) in the district court in which the estate of the decedent is or may be administered. Also, deliver, or send by certified mail, a copy of the instrument to the individual who created the interest or to his/her personal representative, or to the holder of legal title to the property (K.S.A. 59-2292). If real property is involved, record a copy with the register of deeds in the county in which the disclaimed property is located in order to avoid any confusion in the chain of title.
A disclaimer is irrevocable and binding for the disclaiming party and his or her creditors (K.S.A. 59-2293), 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.

A. S. said: First, I am glad that you gave a blank copy, an example copy, and a 'guide'. It made it much easier to do. Overall I was very happy with your products and organization... however, things got pretty confusing and I have a pretty 'serious' law background in Real Estate and Civil law. With that said, I spent about 10+ hours getting my work done, using the Deed of Trust and Promissory note from you and there were a few problems: First, it would be FANTASTIC if you actually aligned your guide to actually match the Deed or Promissory Note. What I mean is that if the Deed says 'section (E)' then your guide shouldn't be 'randomly' numbered as 1,2,3, for advice/instructions, but should EXACTLY match 'section (E)'. Some places you have to 'hunt' for what you are looking for, and if you did it based on my suggestion, you wouldn't need to 'hunt' and it would avoid confusion. 2nd: This one really 'hurt'... you had something called the 'Deed of Trust Master Form' yet you had basically no information on what it was or how to use it. The only information you had was a small section at the top of the 'Short Form Deed of Trust Guide'. Holy Cow, was that 'section' super confusing. I still don't know if I did it correctly, but your guide says only put a return address on it and leave the rest of the 16 or so page Deed of Trust beneath it blank... and then include your 'Deed of Trust' (I had to assume the short form deed that I had just created) as part of it. I had to assume that I had to print off the entire 17 page or so title page and blank deed. I also had to assume that the promissory note was supposed to be EXHIBIT A or B on the Short Form Deed. It would be great if someone would take a serious look at that short section in your 'Short Form Deed of Trust Guide' and realize that those of us using your products are seriously turning this into a county clerk to file and that most of us, probably already have a property that has an existing Deed... or at least can find one in the county records if necessary... and make sure that you make a distinction between the Deed for the property that already exists, versus the Deed of Trust and Promissory note that we are trying to file. Thanks.
