What happens if I dont want my inheritance? 8 Answers as of July 26, 2011My mother died on December 31, 2010 and left her real property to us 11 heirs. She also left living rights to one sister, one brother and our brother in law on a second piece of property she owned...big mess! Anyway, my sister and I do not want this inheritance and we have decided to decline it. What do we have to do relinquish our inheritance? Thank you!

You can do a disclaimer, but in Florida that would only pass the mess to your children. Another option might be a Quit Claim Deed to on or all of the others. If there is a formal administration being done it can be dealt with inside of the probate as long as everyone consents

you just need to put something in writing stating this and signing off on it the Trustee or Executor can assist you with this and should be able to provide the document stating that you are relinquishing your right to this asset as your inheritance..... you want it to be a full release and it doesn't hurt to seek legal advice to make sure you are doing everything properly
