What is the concept of inheritance?
The notion of inheritance is inextricably linked to the determination of one’s own death and that of the deceased’s own property and other material values, including the fate of intellectual property. It is also one of the ways of exercising a person’s right to property.
It should be borne in mind that the death of a citizen is not a ground for considering the deprivation of property of the deceased. The right of ownership of the deceased shall terminate on the grounds of alienation of the property belonging to the deceased in accordance with the procedure prescribed by law.
Article 1184 of the Civil Code is entitled “The notion of inheritance” and provides as follows: “In the case of inheritance, the property (inheritance) of the deceased in the unaltered state, as a whole, passes on to other persons, unless otherwise provided by the rules of this Code.”
