Suppose you just received your uncle’s car as a gift – you can drive it around, pay for repairs, take excellent care of it, and, for all intents and purposes, treat the car as though you own it. However, if the deed hasn’t been transferred to your name, you don’t own the vehicle in the eyes of the law. But how do you convince the county that the car has actually been gifted to you? What you need is a Gift Affidavit.

 

A gift affidavit is a written statement affirming that an asset has been validly transferred from one party to another. By having the gift giver execute the affidavit, you now have the proof you need to enact a deed transfer.

An affidavit is a written statement, sworn to be true in front of an authority, which gives specific reasons to support the things being requested of a judge. The affidavit carries the same weight as court testimony.

 

A gift affidavit is necessary when an expensive asset is transferred as a gift. This is especially true for assets that must be transferred via deed. You may also want to execute a gift affidavit if you believe the ownership of the asset may be contested in the future.

 

 

This affidavit is fairly straightforward and includes:

  • Venue – At the top of the form, the county and state where the affidavit is executed is specified.

  • Recitals – This section describes the who and where of the addendum.

    • The name of the affiant (the gift giver) is provided; and

    • The affiant’s place of residence is listed.

  • Sworn Facts – The next portion of the affidavit contains all of the facts the affiant is swearing are true in front of the witnessing authority. In the gift affidavit, this includes:

    • The identity and residence of the donee (the receiver of the gift); and

    • The asset that has been transferred as a gift.

  • Signatures – The affiant signs and dates the affidavit in front of a witnessing authority, such as a notary public or judge.

 

 

Affidavits are taken very seriously. By executing the document, the affiant is representing all the facts contained within are true to the affiant’s knowledge. If the affiant knowingly falsifies information through this affidavit, they may be subject to perjury charges.
