Forfeiting rights to a joint property by hiding it from other heirs
January 15, 2016 — Inheritance Law
Under Dutch law anyone hiding a joint property from other heirs, trying to keep it outside the division of the estate, can forfeit one’s rights to this property. This is a provision of law that can lead to far-reaching consequenses.
The inheritance law attorneys of Benvalor outline recent case law on this matter on our inheritance law blog (in Dutch).
