What is the procedure for issuing an inheritance certificate?
In order for the right of ownership of the property belonging to him to be transferred to another person after the death of the heir, the inheritance must first be accepted by the heir. The heir shall apply to the appropriate notary office for acceptance of the inheritance, submitting the required documents. The heir submits an application for acceptance of the inheritance within six months after the opening of the inheritance (Civil Code of the Republic of Armenia, Art. 1227). In order to confirm the acceptance of the inheritance, the notary shall issue a certificate of inheritance to the heir.
In the case of a law or testamentary inheritance certificate, the notary checks the death of the heir, the time and place of inheritance opening, kinship or will, the composition of the inheritance mass, and so on.
