An affidavit of heirship is a legal document filed in court by the beneficiaries of an estate to help transfer the deceased person's real estate or personal property. In most instances, using this affidavit speeds up the estate settlement process by helping avoiding probate altogether.
The affidavit of heirship is an especially vital tool for establishing the heirs of people who die without a will, but it can also be used in instances where the deceased person executed a will prior to death. The affidavit must also be signed by a notary public.
