What is a disclaimer of interest?

According to Florida’s Uniform Disclaimer of Property Interests Act in the Estates and Trusts Code, if you are the beneficiary of an amount of interest of property, you may choose to disclaim the interest or power over property that is bequeathed in full or part. To do so, you will need to have a Florida Disclaimer of Interest prepared for you.

A Florida Disclaimer of Interest prepared by QuickDeeds.com is a written statement that declares the intent of the beneficiary to decline the inheritance. It must be signed, witnessed, and recorded just as if it were a deed to the property in question.

As the disclaimant, you will need to file your Florida Disclaimer of Interest with the court clerk’s office in the county where the property is located. A copy must also be received by the decedent’s executor, the administer of their estate or the person who will receive the property in your stead. This document is irrevocable and cannot be reversed once it has been fully executed so it is critical to consult an attorney and make your decisions carefully.
