The Affidavit of Heirship is a real estate document that recognizes the heirs of a person who has met an unforeseen death without creating alegal will stating the heirship of his property. The affidavit allows the immediate family and relatives to gain rights over the deceased person’s property under the law.
The state-specific document serves a great role by helping the lawful heirs avoid probate court. It is signed by a third party (witness) who has no material benefit in the process and is trusted by the documented heirs members alike.
