Inheritance law regulates the financial consequences that arise as a result of the death of individuals, as well as the subsequent transfer of their assets and liabilities to heirs. The law also regulates who can claim an inheritance. This may have been determined by the deceased in the form of a will, which will define who is entitled to the inheritance. In addition, the deceased may have decided to leave a legacy to one or certain heirs or a (non-profit) organization.
