This form is typically used when the deceased did NOT leave a will or estate plan. The Affidavit of Heirship is a sworn statement used to establish the heirs of a property, with a goal of putting the property in their name. Sometimes this form is used to bypass probate when the deceased left a will that leaves the property solely to the direct descendants of the deceased or when 4 years have passed since the death of the owner, the general time frame to probate a will in Texas. An Affidavit of Heirship can be filed anytime. An Affidavit of Heirship alone does not transfer property title. It identifies the heirs of the property.

General parameters for a Texas Affidavit of Heirship document:

No valid will, or if beneficiaries and/or heirs agree to disregard the will.
Only real estate needs to be transferred to heirs.
The deceased does not have any debts.
No administration of estate required.

Easy to use, I would recommend deeds.com. I would recommend visiting your county recorder before having document notarized. They will review document and make sure everything you need is on the deed, before having notarized.
