Inheritance – is an acquisition of assets remaining after the death of another person (the testator). The property obtained by inheritance is called an inheritance estate or a hereditary mass. Inheritance estate includes all the property of a testator on the day of opening of heritage, and other property, including material rights and obligations, left after the death of a testator.
Inheritance estate does not include the rights and duties that are inseparable from the testator, in particular the right to alimony, the right to compensation for harm caused to his life or health, as well as the rights and duties that cannot be inherited/succeeded after another. Similarly, inheritance estate does not include personal non-proprietary and other non-proprietary rights. There are two types of inheritance: by will or by law. By law, the property of the testator (the deceased) is inherited by the next of kin if there is no will available. However, if there is a will, the property is inherited by any individual, organization or the state that is named in such will as heir/successor in right.
