The affidavit of heirship, sometimes called an affidavit of inheritance, is a statutory form under T.C.A. 30-2-712.

An affidavit of heirship, when recorded, gives notice of a change in title following the death of a real property owner. It is typically recorded when the decedent has died intestate, or without a last will and testament. The affidavit names the decedent and the heirs who, by operation of law, are the current owners of the property.

The affiant, or person making the sworn statements contained in the affidavit, is anyone having knowledge of the facts contained within. A standard affidavit of heirship contains the legal description and map parcel number of the realty and lists the heirs by name, address, and relation to the decedent.

In addition, if not followed by a recorded deed from one or all heirs, the affidavit requires the tax bill address for tax statements on the property and a prior title reference stating the type of document and book, page, and recording date of the instrument granting title to the decedent.

This is a general affidavit of heirship. Your situation may require more specific information. Consult a lawyer when preparing the affidavit to ensure all necessary information is included and to understand the legal implications of the document.

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

I FOUND MY STATE, FOUND THE TYPE OF DEED I NEEDED, FILLED IN THE BLANKS, PRINTED IT OUT & THEN GOT THE REQUIRED SIGNATURES WITNESSED & NOTARIZED -- EASY-PEASY! I WILL BE USING DEEDS.COM IN THE FUTURE & WILL CERTAINLY RECOMMEND IT TO FRIENDS & FAMILY.

recently joined Deeds.com. still exploring the site. has been very helpful in providing local information for recording, such as fees and requirements. i am working to correct mistakes made within a deed. it is amazing how these municipalities operate outside the scope of Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17; to claim land is "in" the "State of ____. when the land is actually not ceded to the United States of America as for use for needful buildings. beware of the fraud perpetrated by Attorneys in the recording of your Deeds. Registration as "RESIDENTIAL" puts your private-use land on the TAX rolls with the use of that one word. i recommend this site as it appears there is information for each state and each county office. will update my review once i place an order.

Easy to follow directions and instructions to properly and legally fill-in the Deed that I requested. It was also very easy and convenient. If I was going to employ an Attorney or Legal Documents Preparer, they would easily charge me between $150 to $225 a Deed! For the cost of $19.97, anyone would pursue this price! Thank you, Deeds.com for a wonderful and terrific experience! I'm going to need you again to change Titles for my other Investment Properties.

I am a litigator based in Lee County that rarely needs to record deeds or mortgages. However, at times, the settlement or resolution of a dispute results in the conveyance of real property. I ended up in a situation where a deed to real property in Bradford County needed to be recorded on behalf of a client. My usual e-recording vendor does not include that County. Registering with Bradford County's regular e-recording vendor would have required an expensive and unnecessary annual fee.

Deeds.com was easy to use, inexpensive and fast. I highly encourage its use, especially for lawyers that occasionally need to record instruments but do not do so regularly.
