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.

Sherilynne P. said: I am delighted with the form. I just had to go through so much time and expense in order to use it. First, from your site I downloaded Adobe Acrobat. It totally compromised my computer. I had to get a computer expert to walk me through deleting adobe, and put a substitute on in order to use the form. That was an expense of $60.00. Then after that I still had a hard time getting the program to work, as the substitute program would not accept my e-mail address and I finally had to get someone on line to help me access that. I found it was a $$30.00 charge for the substitute. After fighting these lovely roadblocks, I was finally able to fill in the only form I needed and print it off. Took me two days to accomplish that. Why on earth do you offer adobe when it can compromise a computer so badly? Dealing with my husbands death and then having to deal with this, just one of many deterrents, well let's put it this way, it did not make my two days.
Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear of your experience. Our documents are Adobe PDFs because PDF is the standard for digital documents, most computers have Adobe Reader installed, and it (Adobe Reader) is free.
Jina N. said: Awesome site!! You guys really make it simple to understand and access any Deeds that I need. I know you keep very up to date forms, as my county is hard core when it comes to the smallest of details, even compared to every other county across the state. Yet you made it simple and quick, and I never had to redo anything. Even the clerk was impressed that I had it filled out correctly the first time, as that usually never happened. Even the size of type/font and the margins were perfect. That saved a lot of time, money and most of all, frustration. I've recommended you to relatives, friends and co-workers. Thanks to the staff at deeds dot com !! I truly appreciate you. j
