Withdrawal/return of a disposition of property upon death from special official custody

Service Description

If you have placed a disposition of property upon death (e.g. a will or an inheritance contract) in special official custody with the court or if it was deposited there by a notary at your request, you can have it returned to you from special official custody. The request can be made at any time. If you have made the disposition of property upon death jointly with your spouse or civil partner, it can only be returned to both of you at your mutual request. If you have concluded an inheritance contract, all contracting parties must request its return. In certain cases, the withdrawal from official custody also means the revocation of the deposited disposition of property upon death, e.g. in the case of notarized wills. Therefore, in these constellations, the testator must be capable of making a will when requesting the return. The request can also be made by a representative. However, the return can only be made to the testator themselves.
