An affidavit of descent (alternately, affidavit of heirship) under KRS 382.120 establishes a source of title for a grantor who is transferring property he or she acquired from an intestate estate.

The affidavit must be filed before the grantor can record a deed conveying the subject property. Pursuant to Kentucky statute, the affiant (person making the sworn statements contained within the affidavit) may be the grantor or any one (1) of the heirs at law or next of kin of the ancestor of the grantor, or of two (2) residents of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

The affidavit must recite the ancestor's name, date of death, and place of residence, as well as information regarding the ancestor's surviving spouse, if applicable. In addition, the affidavit must state that the ancestor died intestate (without a will), and contain a list of the names, ages, and addresses of each of the ancestor's heirs at law and next of kin, and include everyone's relationship to the ancestor and the interest in real property he or she inherited by the ancestor's death.

The affiant must sign the document before a notary public before filing in the office of the county clerk of the county wherein the subject real property is situated.

Contact a lawyer with questions about Kentucky legal documents or other inquiries related to probate.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

Quick and easy. Would recommend this site to everyone. Deed was sent to the site and recorded at my local county within 24 hours. Website could be set up better. Not labeled well for us that is not computer savvy.

The Oregon TODD transfer on death deed template worked great and was easy to use. They had instructions and a guide that had good pointers to filling everything out. It took about 2 weeks to mail in my filled TODD and receive it back from the county with their stamp. Would definitely use this service for other documents

Great and fast service. Would have been grate to have seen a little more detail or a pre-filled sample in the fields. Had a little confussion in some of the lines to fill out since the guide only explains a few of the lines not all of them. Otherwise, is really great to have this service with low cost. Thank you.
