Judicial distribution of an inheritance

If the heirs do not reach an agreement in the allotment of the assets that make up the inheritance, it will be necessary to request judicial assistance and initiate judicial proceedings for the distribution of the inheritance. In summary, it is a procedure in which the judicial experts will appraise the hereditary assets and the assigned accountant will be in charge of forming specific lots of assets and allotting them to each co-heir according to their hereditary quota. 

Both in the application for the judicial division of the inheritance itself and through the Voluntary Jurisdiction, the appointment of a judicial administrator can be requested, as well as other measures for the protection of the estate, that is, when it has not yet been accepted by any heir and there is a real risk that the inherited estate will be deteriorated if it is not properly administered.

The Department of Proceedings of GABARRÓ ADVOCATS –HERÈNCIES- analyses the need to file a lawsuit for judicial division of the inheritance and defends before the courts the rights of the heirs it represents.
