Inheritance law

We assist and advise our clients on all cases related to the Bulgarian inheritance law: searching inheritance property, determination of inheritance quotas, drawing up a will, voluntary or judicial division of inheritance, restoration of a preserved part, abandonment of inheritance, inventory inheritance, and other.

We perform inspection and a detailed search for local property, when the deceased is a foreign national and has left heirs abroad /we collect information about their real property in Bulgaria, shares in local companies, money in bank accounts, motor vehicles and movable property/.

We present to the interested parties a legal analysis and opinion on the ownership of the inherited property according to the provisions of the Bulgarian inheritance law, as well as provide the heirs with duplicates of death certificates and certificates of heirs in Bulgaria.

We can prepare and file claims for inheritance and inheritance shares before the local courts, including in disputes between heirs, disputes about a surviving part of the inheritance (contesting wills and donations made by the testator) and more.

Once the inherited property is distributed, we can help the heir sell their acquired inherited property and collect the sale price on their behalf.

We can prepare and register wills by advising our clients on how to distribute property in a way that does not create conflicts between heirs.

For more information on the above legal services, please contact us by using the e-mails and phone numbers provided in our „Contacts” section.
