Apply for a community minimum inheritance certificate

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 can apply for a certificate of inheritance as individual co-heirs, with which you can prove to third parties that you are the rightful heir. However, if you wish 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.

You can apply for a minimum certificate of inheritance if not all the heirs have been determined yet, for example, because they still have to be identified, but it is clear to what extent an heir has at least a share in the estate. The minimum certificate of inheritance then only shows the inheritance quota that would be attributable to you as the applicant for the certificate of inheritance if there were actually still heirs in the line or tribe that has not yet been clarified.
