What is the Kentucky Affidavit of Descent

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.

Was driven to this site by the county website. It took a bit of work having to create an account, etc. The example was useful; however the example only showed both parties in the same county, nor did the instructions mention anything about differing counties. This caused an oversight on my part.

I downloaded the wrong form, how do I change this, or can I?

Sorry to hear that. As a one time courtesy we have canceled your order and payment for the documents you ordered in error. Have a great day.

Downloaded and used the Ladybird Warranty Deed for a county in Florida with no issues. Cost for the download and subsequent recording fee of the deed totaled less than $40. No reason to pay hundreds. I assume the subsequent transfer upon death will go smoothly, but I of course, will never know. The "example" of a completed form was very beneficial. Also, get a copy of the current deed and make sure legal description of real estate is exactly the same on the new deed.

Just found this site, what a great resource !

Thank you so much for providing affordable
help to those of us navigating estate planning
mazes. The forms were all very easy to download,
even on our rather ancient computer, and the
accompanying explanations were in clear,
understandable English designed to explain,
with appropriate cautions to avoid problems.

This is another great deal that has come out of the quarantine for covid. Saved me hours and days of time. and provides a way to file deeds that really isn't done effectively anyway else. It was also very inexpensive that you would not expect. I didn't even have to leave home.

This online service was very easy to use. I highly recommend Deeds.com. The quick response from the representative upon submitting your document is quick. If something needed to be adjusted they will send you message and you can in turn respond right away with a message. The pricing of this service is very reasonable.
