HB 287 is a comprehensive collection of rules outlining the types of property interests eligible for disclaimer, the process by which property interests may be disclaimed, and the effect of a disclaimer on the interest itself.
The Uniform Disclaimer of Property Interests Act was promulgated in 1999 and has already been adopted in 16 other states. There do not appear to be any reported court cases construing this Act. There have been several law review articles discussing the pros and cons of the Uniform Act; Representative Gruenberg would be happy to provide copies of these articles to any interested parties.
