Florida has adopted the Florida Uniform Disclaimer of Property Interests Act effective July 1, 2005.
The Florida enactment is modeled after the UDPIA. However, the Florida version contains substantial enhancements to many sections of the Uniform Act.
The variations are so significant that Adam Hirsch, the William and Catherine VanDercreek Professor of Law at Florida State University, says that "it may fairly be described as an alternative model, potentially worthy of contemplation by other state drafting committees."
