Apply for a certificate of inheritance limited to a single person

Service Description

A sole heir certificate testifies that you alone are the legal successor to the deceased. This is the case if the deceased person designated you as the sole or universal heir in a will or on the basis of an inheritance contract. Or if you are the sole heir under the statutory succession because all the other co-heirs have disclaimed the inheritance.

If the inheritance includes estate items both in Germany and abroad, you can apply to the probate court for a certificate of inheritance limited to the specific items. This certificate of inheritance is limited to the estate located in Germany. This may be advisable if it speeds up the procedure for issuing the certificate of inheritance (for example, because no foreign inheritance law has to be determined) or because the certificate of inheritance is not required abroad and costs can be saved as a result of the restriction.
