Louisiana Disclaimer of Interest

Louisiana Disclaimer of Interest Information

Louisiana Renunciation of Property Interest

Under the Louisiana Civil Code, the beneficiary of an interest in property may renounce the gift, either in part or in full (La. Civ. Code 947 to 967). Note that the option is only available to beneficiaries who have not acted in any way to indicate acceptance or ownership of the interest ( 957-959). Louisiana also provides the option of a donative renunciation, which allows an heir to renounce in favor of a third person to whom the inheritance would not devolve by statute or by will ( 960). For the specifics of this option, consult with an attorney.

Acceptance is presumed unless there is an official renunciation ( 962). The document must be in writing and include a description of the interest, a declaration of intent to renounce all or a defined portion of the interest, and be signed by the renouncing party ( 963).

Deliver the document within nine months of the transfer (e.g., the death of the creator of the interest) to the personal representative of the decedent's estate or the trustee, or file it with the court that has jurisdiction over proceedings regarding the estate of the deceased donor. If real property is involved, avoid any ambiguity regarding the chain of title by recording a copy of the document with the Clerk of Court of the parish in which the property is located.

A renunciation is irrevocable and binding for the renouncing party and his or her creditors ( 954, 964), so be sure to consult an attorney when in doubt about the drawbacks and benefits. If the interest arises out of jointly-owned property, seek legal advice as well.

Walter P. said: Good forms for deep prep.A lot of detail needed to complete the deed.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate it. Have a great day!


Diane W. said: The forms were immediately available for download, which was nice. However, I was not impressed by the lack of several features: 1) there was no way to edit set text in the form, such as where it says you should consult an attorney. That is not necessary for recording the deed and I wanted to deleted it, but could not. 2) Also, under the "Notes" section, there is a limited area to write; I tried adding a fuller explanation of something, but the form would not accept or include it when I printed the final document. The form may do the job, but it's not very sophisticated or elegant.

Kolette S. said: The forms are nice; however, they do not display the "th" after the day or the second digit of the year. You can type them in, but they will not print out. I just left them blank and will handwrite.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate it. Have a great day!


Alan C. said: I thought the instructions could have been a little better. I didn't know how to do this if the spouses are married but living in separate residences. Also I didn't understand the "Prior Instrument Reference". That should be explained better. Very sketchy instructions.
