Kentucky Disclaimer of Interest

Under the Kentucky Revised Statutes, the beneficiary of an interest in property may renounce the gift, either in part or in full (KRS 394.610 to 670). Note that the option to disclaim is only available to beneficiaries who have not acted in any way to indicate acceptance or ownership of the interest (KRS 394.640)

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 (KRS 394.610 (2)).

File the disclaimer within nine months of the transfer (e.g., the death of the creator of the interest) to the District Court of the county in which proceedings have been commenced, or could commence, for the administration of the estate of the deceased. Also, deliver a copy of the disclaimer to the personal representative or any other fiduciary of the decedent or donee. In the case of real property, record a copy of the disclaimer in the office of the county clerk of the county in which the real estate is located (KRS 394.620 (3)).

A disclaimer is irrevocable and binding for the disclaiming party and his or her creditors, 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.

Camesha Y. said: Was working with a notary client that need to do a deed. We got on this site, ordered the blank forms, he filled them out and we printed them so he could sign. Really clean forms, easy to understand and complete in a hurry. I will be letting all my clients know about this site.
