- Inheritance and Will
Please leave your inheritance concerns to Haruka Law Office !
Most people will experience inheritance issues at one time or another, but not many people, whether they are the one who inherits or the one who is given an inheritance, are prepared for it beforehand.
Moreover, depending on the circumstances of each family and their relatives, inheritance can become a dispute, and the procedure is complicated, so it is difficult for ordinary people to do it on their own.
Legal Profession Corporation, which is rooted in Aomori City, supports the inheritance problems of local residents from a professional standpoint.
Benefits of asking the Attorney to deal with inheritance issues
By asking us to take over the inheritance issue, you can leave all these complicated tasks to lawyers.
The following advantages can be achieved if you ask us for inheritance problems.
Be entrusted with complex inheritance procedures
For inheritance, the following questions can be raised.
- I don't know what property the deceased had or who the heir is.
- I discovered a Will, but I don't know how to properly inform the existence and content of it.
- I don't know what to claim, though I should have a legacy that I can receive.
- I don't know how to deal with land division requests.
- I don't know how to deal with the debts I've made in my life.
The problem of inheritance often occurs suddenly and it seems to be difficult and many procedures are complicated.
Even if you don't examine the details mentioned above individually, if you leave the specific procedures to the Attorney, you can eliminate the burden of inheriting the estate.
Can create a legally valid Will without errors
In the case of inheritance, if the person who remains the estate has a special desire for partition of estate, he/she must leave a Will.
- I want to give this house I'm living in to my eldest daughter who is now taking care of me.
- I have no children and I want to leave my property to my wife (husband) alone.
- I don't have any relatives, so I'd like to donate my remaining assets after my death to some charity.
- I'm afraid of getting dementia in the future, so I want to make decisions about my inheritance in advance.
- I want to prevent an inheritance dispute.
In order to realize the above ideas, it is necessary to prepare a Will that is both publicly valid and appropriate in accordance with the law.
In addition, the division of the estate must be determined carefully so that the content is too biased to cause conflicts between relatives.
Taking all of these factors into consideration, the Attorney, who is an expert, is able to create a legally valid Will that respects the wishes of the individuals who have remained property to the fullest extent and avoids problems between relatives.
Be entrusted with the investigation of the content of the inherited property and the heirs
In order to divide the estate among the heirs, it must be known exactly what (1) the property to be inherited and (2) who should inherit it.
However, there may be cases where the heir is unknown or where there is a large amount of wealth in a bank account that the heir does not know.
These surveys require confirmation procedures and various documents from government offices and financial institutions.
If you leave it to the Attorney, you can greatly reduce your burden.
Be advised whether to renounce inheritance
In the event of a debt remaining, it is necessary to decide whether inheritance should be renounced.
In the case of renunciation of inheritance, it is necessary to make a careful decision as to which one should be chosen, since it is also a renunciation of a positive legacy.
Please consult us with the Attorney as we can take steps to manage only the debt while retaining positive assets.
The power of "professional negotiation" comes into play in estate planning
There are many instances where the wishes and thoughts of the heirs clash with each other in the Legacy division conference where the division of the estate is discussed.
If the heirs talk about these kinds of wishes, such as "I want to get this real estate in cash because it is not necessary," and "I want to get this real estate in hand," there is nothing to come together.
If you leave your inheritance issues to us, a professional negotiator, it will be easier for you to reach a conclusion that is close to your wishes at the estate division conference.
Avoid inadvertent deterioration of relationships between heirs
Inheritance is very delicate.
If the discussion does not go well, each heir may be very tired, and in some cases irreversible cracks between relatives may occur.
If you ask the Attorney, you will be able to proceed smoothly with discussions with your relatives.
We can effectively negotiate and provide appropriate advice and support to avoid problems from an objective standpoint.
Appropriate procedures can be taken to recover a Legally reserved portion if it is violated.
The minimum amount of property that can be inherited by the legal heirs other than brothers and sisters is called the "residue portion" but depending on the content of the Will, there are cases where inheritance that should otherwise be received is violated.
In this case, the procedure "Claim for abatement of legally reserved portion" will be followed.
Since this claim for the reduction of the retained earnings often progresses to mediation or litigation, we recommend that you contact an attorney from the beginning.
