Apply for a joint certificate of partial inheritance

Service Description

When a testator dies, he or she usually leaves not just one heir, but several. These heirs join the so-called community of heirs at the time of inheritance. Only after the inheritance has been distributed will the estate be divided among you as individual heirs in accordance with the agreements made.

In principle, you as individual co-heirs can apply for a certificate of inheritance, with which he or she can prove to third parties that he or she is the rightful heir. However, if you want to act jointly as a community of heirs and act vis-à-vis banks, insurers and the land registry, a joint certificate of inheritance is often required.

The joint certificate of partial inheritance is issued for the inheritance rights of several, but not all, co-heirs at the request of a co-heir, for example, if a co-heir has emigrated and is therefore unavailable.
