What is to be understood by saying a mass of inheritance?
The mass of the inheritance is all that belonged to the deceased during his lifetime and was preserved after his death. It may be movable or immovable property, money, securities, property rights and liabilities that do not cease to exist with his death and may be transferred to his heirs.
inheritance rights and obligations relating to the heir are not transferred, in particular:
• alimony rights and obligations;
• the right to compensation for damage to the life or health of a citizen;
• personal non-property rights and intangible goods;
• rights and obligations that are not legally permitted by inheritance.
The inheritance includes not only the property considered as the property of the heir but also his property rights and obligations.
