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 was trying to register a financial statement (non real estate document). There was no link or statement on the home page to indicate that this could be done. All I had to do was to create an account, name and then upload the document. It took me over a day and several phone calls to the local deed recording office to try to figure this out. A simple link or statement to this effect would have saved me a lot of time

Form is easy to complete but has a crowded look upon printing. I would put more returns between paragraphs to make it easier to read.

Review: Forms are on point, to the point, and cover the vast majority of situations. Would not suggest if your deal is overly complicated but most situations are not complicated at all.
