An Affidavit of Residence is a document through which either an individual person affirms their own residence or someone affirms the prior residence of a deceased person. No matter what the reason is, the affiant, the person affirming the facts in the Affidavit, must not only verify that the statements in the Affidavit are true and correct, they must also produce identification before a Notary Public to have the document notarized.
Often, these documents are used when the local residence of the affiant is important for some kind of new application or verification. They are also very often used for the purpose of distributing a decedent's property after their death and they are sometimes called Affidavits of Domicile when used as such.
Affidavits of Residence contain basic information about either the affiant for their own personal uses or the affiant and the decedent:
1. Full legal name;
2. Full address;
3. Facts surrounding the residence;
4. Document name and if applicable, number verifying the ID of the affiant; and
5. Reason the Affidavit is needed.
How to use this document
This document can be completed by any individual needing a form to verify their residence or for a disinterested party to verify the residence of a decedent for any purpose. A disinterested party is a person that will not inherit anything from the decedent's estate and who has no other interest in the decedent's estate.
Once it is filled out, the Affidavit must be notarized, which means the affiant signs before a Notary Public, after providing valid legal identification.
An Affidavit of Residence generally isn't covered by one specific set of laws, but will depend on the situation for which it is needed. This form contains all of the required information for any situation where residence or domicile needs to be verified.
