Notarize the disclaimer of the inheritance

Service Description

If you have become an heir, you must decide whether to accept or reject the inheritance.This applies regardless of whether you inherit on the basis of intestate succession, a will or an inheritance contract. First find out what assets and what debts are present.

If you do not wish to accept the inheritance, you must expressly declare the disclaimer to the probate court. If you do not wish to visit the probate court in person to declare the disclaimer in writing, you can have a notarized declaration drawn up by a notary and submit it to the probate court. A written declaration without certification of your signature is not sufficient.

If you renounce the inheritance, you will be treated as if you had not been alive at the time of the inheritance, i.e. the inheritance will accrue to the person who would have been appointed in your place in this case. It then depends on whether the testator has designated substitute heirs or who succeeds you in the legal succession.
