Utah Disclaimer of Interest

As part of the Utah Uniform Probate Code, the beneficiary of an interest in property may renounce the gift, either in part or in full (Utah Code 75-2-801). 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 (Utah Code 75-2-801 (5)).

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 (Utah Code 75-2-801 (3)).

File the disclaimer within nine months of the transfer (e.g., the death of the creator of the interest) with the district court of the county that has jurisdiction over proceedings regarding the estate of the deceased donor. In addition, deliver a copy of the disclaimer in person or send it by registered mail to the personal representative of the decedent's estate (Utah Code 75-2-801 (2) (a)). If the transfer is enacted by an instrument other than a will, deliver a copy of the disclaimer to the person who has legal title to or possession of the property (Utah Code 75-2-801 (2) (b)). If real property is involved, record a copy of the disclaimer in the office of the county recorder in the county in which the property or interest disclaimed is located (Utah Code 75-2-801 (2) (d)).

A disclaimer is irrevocable and binding for the disclaiming party and his or her creditors (Utah Code 75-2-801 (4) (c)), 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.

Margaret C. said: I recieved my document in a reasonable amount of time. I thought being a member i would be able to look up more than 1 document but it keeps asking me for more money. I requested help, asking if I need to pay for each document but have not yet been answered. I appreciate the fact I got 1 document I needed quickly.

Christine R. said: Ordering and directions were easy. The only thing missing in the instructions was how to record by mail. Thanks!

Reply from Staff: Thank you Christine. We'll work on making it more clear that one can find mailing information in our recording section. Have a great day!


Linda W. said: Fast service. From the time I sent my Quit Claim Deed to deeds.com, and six hours later my deed was recorded. It was painless, great convenience.

Matthew T. said: 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.
