Contract of inheritance

Considering their death, people can either plan the future of their possessions, or leave its settlement to the legislation. In the first case, they can unilaterally decide about their possession by issuing a will, or can also enter into an agreement with another person to settle the future of their possessions.

An example to the latter can be to transfer the ownership rights of their property to another person entering into an agreement with them though an attorney’s document – this is what we call a maintenance contract. However, it can also be settled in a way that the person entering into agreement with the legator will only receive the ownership rights of the property after the decease of the legator – this is the anticipated succession inter vivos.

Getting the ownership rights though anticipated succession inter vivos is not automatical – in this case, the probate proceedings must be conducted as well.
