Need an inheritance lawyer in Amsterdam? OTIS is at your service
When someone has passed away, there are many practical matters surrounding the inheritance that need to be arranged. Think about the declaration of death, the funeral, but also the financial and administrative settlement. There is a lot of pressure on the relatives at once, so there is a risk that they will not be aware, or not sufficiently aware, of the legal complications that may arise.
What is inheritance law?
Inheritance law is a complex area of law and there are many short deadlines in which to act. Also, by performing certain actions, an inheritor may unknowingly accept a legacy in its entirety and become liable for the debts of the inheritance with his own assets.
Questions may also arise for creditors after a death. How do you find out who the heirs are and to whom and when can you lodge your claim? Can you seize the inheritance and when can you expect payment of your claim? If you have been disinherited and you want to claim your child’s share – the legitimate portion – you are also a creditor. In that case, specific obligations apply, such as submitting your claim in time, and rights apply, such as the right to all the information you need to calculate the amount of your claim
