Since 09/3/2021, article 28 of the Mortgage Act is abolished, an anachronistic article that hindered for two years the legal traffic of real estate inherited by people who were not direct heirs of the deceased. Although in Catalonia it did not make any sense because the legitimacy is a credit right, lately its inscription in the Property Registry had reappeared, with the problems that it posed in practice.
