Chapter Summary

This chapter contains twenty seven articles on the disposition of estate. If there are two or more heirs, the estate shall belong to all heirs in co-ownership. Without the consent of all heirs, any single heir shall be prohibited from making use of, benefitting from or disposing of the estate to the prejudice of its value. An heir who disclaims inheritance shall make his decision known by a written declaration within two months after becoming aware of the commencement of inheritance. In the absence of such a declaration, he is deemed to have accepted the inheritance. The partition of an estate takes effect retroactively at the moment of commencement of inheritance, but this shall not prejudice the interests of the third person.
