Probate - disclaimer of an inheritance

Anyone who does not wish to be an heir must disclaim the inheritance in due time and form

An heir may disclaim the inheritance if he has not yet accepted it and the disclaimer period has not yet expired. After expiry of the disclaimer period, the inheritance is deemed to have been accepted.


The disclaimer of the inheritance must be declared to the probate court within the disclaimer period and in the prescribed form.

What documents do I need?
