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.

This service is fantastic! Took a few tries to scan the document correctly, but their patience and quick turn around made this a far better experience than going to the County myself.

This service is amazing! We have tried several other online recording services which all disappointed. Deeds.com got all three of our documents recorded same day as invoice payment. Thank you for the quick turn around! We will be using this service often.

I appreciate the very quick response that I received and I am very impressed with the access that you provide to records. I'm still in the process of trying to find out what's there but that will take a bit of time. All in all, you are to be commended for a first class operation.

This is a great service and terrific value. The form package provided (blank form, example form & set of instructions) was clear and easy to follow. Being able to complete the forms using the computer to insert the needed information saved countless hours. My completed form was accepted by the Clerk & Recorder office without any issue. Well worth the investment

I do not enjoy the process of not knowing how something works. When I get to a new website I cringe inside. When I find one that works I am pleased to have function. Thank you for making it easy for a lay person

Our firm is working remotely and a lot of court services are limited with the corona-virus shutdowns, but we needed to record a Deed at the last minute. There was no other way we'd could get it done that quick without Deeds.com

(staff) helped us work out some kinks and we got it recorded in less than 1 business day!

Thank you!

Exactly what I needed and saved me a bundle by not having to hire an attorney. My county clerk said it was exactly correct.

Perfection. The filled-out form was especially helpful and I appreciate not having to share personal/financial information over the Internet, as required by so many other legal form service providers.
