Inheritance law

With good advice to the goal

Inheritance law advice

Advice on inheritance law is an important component of my work. Since emotions often play an important role in the consultation, I try to work out with calmness and empathy what is important to the person seeking advice.

Both the assertion of compulsory shares and the drafting of wills often address extremely sensitive issues, which are treated with the utmost discretion.

Your estate in good hands

Guardianship of estates and execution of wills

Having handled numerous estates as a court-appointed guardian of estates and executor of wills, I have gained a wide range of experience in the field of inheritance law.

Within the scope of the administration of estates, I conduct heir searches and I am entrusted with the administration and safeguarding of existing assets, be it real estate, financial assets or even companies.

The aim is to find heirs as quickly as possible and to be able to hand over the estate entrusted to me. This also includes the settlement of estates without assets.

Avoid disputes

Inheritance disputes and mediation

The inheritance process always involves the risk of disputes within the family. In the context of executorships but also free mandates, disputes can be avoided due to the use of a neutral third party.

Mediation is also a useful means of avoiding disputes and preserving family structures, particularly in the area of inheritance law. In mediation, all sides of a dispute are examined and the parties involved find a solution that is acceptable to all. I am happy to moderate this process of finding a solution in mediation.

A guardianship of the estate is ordered by the court ex officio or on application if the heirs are unknown or all known heirs have renounced the estate, in order to secure and preserve the assets, identify the heirs or settle the estate.

Anyone who has a legitimate interest in a guardianship of the estate, for example the landlord, in order to have a contact person for termination and eviction of the apartment. 

The testator can order an execution of a will in the will if it is feared that the heirs will not be able to agree among themselves or if the heirs do not live locally. In principle, the execution of a will serves the regulated settlement of the estate. 

A will can be made by hand, i.e. written and signed by the person himself. Some formal requirements must be observed here. In addition, a will can be prepared by a lawyer or a notary and notarized with a notary.

The compulsory portion is due to the descendants (i.e. children or grandchildren if the children are no longer alive) and the spouse if he or she does not become the heir. The compulsory portion is half of the statutory share of the inheritance.
