Can an heir renounce the inheritance?
Within six months of the opening of the inheritance, the heir can not only accept the inheritance and receive the certificate of inheritance in return, but also renounce the inheritance. In expressing his will to renounce the inheritance, the heir must submit a written application to the notary office. The application must be submitted in person, and if not possible, its signature must be approved by a notary or notary public official. The heirs may renounce both the law and the will of the testator.
