• Inheritance

    The inheritance assets are shared as stated in an open will or by law. There are many aspects which have to be taken into account, such as:

    1. The address of the deceased person.
    2. The right of the descendants to a proportional share of the estate, which passes by law.
    3. Inheritance taxes.  The heirs have a period of six months since the moment of decease to pay taxes. These taxes expire after a period of four years and six months after the death. It is important to ask your lawyer how much will these taxes reach.
