Statement of inheritance Minutes

Once you have become an heir, you must decide whether to accept or turn down the inheritance. This applies regardless of whether you inherit on the basis of legal succession, a will or an inheritance contract.

First, find out which assets and liabilities are available. If you do not wish to accept the inheritance, you must explicitly declare the rash.

It is not enough for you to make a written statement. You can explain the decisiveing of the inheritance to the probate court.

If the inheritance has been effectively rejected, the one or the former is treated as if the inheritance had never accrued.
