Inheritance and succession law is the branch of law that regulates issues related to the transmission of a person’s property and rights after their death. This includes the distribution of the deceased’s property and rights among heirs, as well as determining the order of succession and the validity of wills and other documents relating to the transmission of property.

When a person dies, their assets and rights pass to their heirs according to the inheritance laws of the country or region. Succession laws can vary widely from one place to another, but they generally set rules for the distribution of the deceased’s property and rights among the legal heirs, including spouses, children and close relatives.

In addition, inheritance laws also regulate the validity and enforceability of wills, which are legal documents through which a person can determine the distribution of their property and rights after their death. Probate laws can also regulate issues related to the inventory of the deceased’s property and rights and the payment of inheritance taxes.

Inheritance and succession law is a complex branch and can be difficult to understand, especially in the case of international wills and inheritances. Therefore, lawyers specialising in inheritance and succession law can help heirs understand their obligations and rights and resolve issues relating to the transmission of the deceased’s property and rights fairly and effectively.
