The inheritance law regulates the rights and obligations of heirs. Even when the deceased has made a will, the legal rules must be followed. Anyone of 18 years or older may differ from the statutory rules by making a will. In principle, you are free to make arrangements about your legacy with one exception, this is in case you have children. They can put aside some of the provisions in a will by relying on their legal portion.
Legacies are often the source of misunderstanding and disagreement. It is therefore important that everyone makes a will to end any ambiguity about the destination of his/her possessions.
