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.

Was warned by attorney that forms from internet have lots of mistakes. But after looking all over, took a chance on here. So far, I am satisfied, and actually happy that I got something that (I believe) meets my state and local requirements. Haven't filed the deed yet, or had to put it into effect, but being able to pick the local area, and have the relevant state law listed on the deed, gives me confidence. Also, got the whole package of possibly relevant forms, and a very good guide how to prep the deed with a sample completed deed - greatly appreciated!

Was quick and easy compared to visiting downtown where the recorders office is closed or just the thought of mailing important documents and waiting until someone hopefully reaches back out to you. All responses were timely and process was easy. No complaints.

Ordered quitclaim deed form for Knox county Illinois. It got the job done however it was not a very good format. I had to explain all to the county recorder & was worried she would reject it. I would not recommend this item.
