The legal inheritance represents the transmission of the inheritance in accordance to the law, in the quota and order determined by the provisions of the law to the entitled persons.

It also applies to the case that the deceased did not dispose of his fortune by means of testament in case of death, or the existing testament does not produce legal effects, in whole or in part, as well as in the situation that the deceased did leave a testament but it does not include dispositions regarding the transmission of the inheritance.

The legal inheritance requests the accomplishment in due time of the legal procedures by the successors, especially regarding the acceptance of the inheritance in a certain limited period of time. According to the provisions of the new civil code, the acceptance of the inheritance can be done in a year’s time from the opening of the succession (in comparison to the provisions of the old legislation that contained a term of only 6 months).

For a person to have this right she has to be invited to the succession, speaking in legal terms, it has to have successional, legal or testamentary claim to the inheritance. So, the claim to inheritance is an essential condition of the right to inheritance and has its grounds in the legal provisions or in the testament of the deceased.
