Unless prohibited by the testator, the heir is entitled to receive – at least – one quarter of the liquid hereditary assets. Therefore, if so many bequests have been ordered in the will so as to impinge on this mandatory share, these bequests can be reduced.
In order to exercise this right, the heir must have taken an inventory within a certain time and in a certain manner.
If, on the other hand, the heir intends to reduce a bequest in an erroneous manner, either because he has not carried out the calculations properly or because he has not met the legally established requirements, the beneficiary may assert his rights and defend the non-reduction of his bequest.
The Department of Proceedings of GABARRÓ ADVOCATS –HERÈNCIES- calculates the Quarta Falcidia and, should this be the case, defends the rights of the heir before the Courts or, conversely, defends the rights of those beneficiaries who have been sued but should not have their legacies reduced.
