The answer in detail

Options when drawing up a contract of inheritance

You have two options for making succession arrangements.

  1. On the one hand, there is the positive contract of succession, describing the inheritance benefit.
  2. On the other hand, there is the negative contract of succession, i.e. renunciation of inheritance.

In both cases, you stipulate who inherits or does not inherit what after your death.

Our sample texts show you these two options in detail and help you draw up a contract of succession.
