Confiscation of a sole certificate

If the probate court learns that the heirs listed in the certificate of inheritance are not the real heirs of the testator, it must withdraw the certificate of inheritance ex officio. The certificate of inheritance thus becomes powerless and the alleged heirs listed in this incorrect certificate of inheritance can no longer jointly dispose of the estate. The confiscation of the certificate of inheritance can also be suggested by the real heir in court.
