How to find out the assets of a deceased person in argentina
In this Article we intend to make a concise writing so that any person can know in a general way the basic aspects that govern a process of liquidation, partition and adjudication of the real estate properties located in Puerto Rico and that are part of the inheritance assets of persons who have died in or out of Puerto Rico.
It has been our experience that the more time passes, the more complicated the process for the liquidation of the inheritance and the corresponding adjudication of the real property contained in such inheritance. With the mere passage of time, events continue to occur; death and/or mental incapacity of one or more of the presumed heirs, participation in the inheritance of minors, ignorance of the whereabouts or lack of interest in the inheritance of one or more of the presumed heirs, etc. All these events undoubtedly hinder the processing and disposition of the properties under an inheritance liquidation process.
How do I know if I am heir to an inheritance?
A person can dispose of his or her assets before passing away, by making a will, or he or she can pass away without having made a will, which is an intestate inheritance or also called “abintestato” (intestate).
They are those persons designated by the deceased in his will, different from the forced heirs. Voluntary heirs can only be left the portion of assets not reserved for forced heirs. If there are no forced heirs, the voluntary heirs may acquire the entire estate.
If any of the heirs designated by the deceased in his will has been instituted in a certain and determined thing (example: “to my brother Juan I leave in inheritance the olive tree farm”) he will be considered as a legatee.
When the testator names some heirs individually and others collectively, as if he says: I institute as my heirs N. and N. and the children of N., the ones collectively named will be considered as legatees. the collectively named heirs shall be considered as if they were individually named heirs, unless it is clearly established that the testator’s will was otherwise.
Inheritance law in Germany
In the event of the death of the deceased, German land registry offices, banks and insurances usually require a document proving the status of heir before transferring assets or settling an inheritance.
Both the declaration of heirs and the CSE indicate the right to inherit and the size of the respective share of the inheritance, a possible fiduciary succession or indirect succession or testamentary execution.
Whoever has been called as heir can repudiate the inheritance, for example, if the estate is overindebted. Repudiation of the inheritance can be declared by means of a declaration of repudiation addressed to the probate court in Germany.
Whereas the succession of German citizens was previously governed by German law, since August 17, 2015, the law of the place of habitual residence of the deceased at the time of death is decisive.

Types of wills in Germany
Ask for information in the Cadastre: you must request a list of assets in the name of the deceased, to check if there is any that is not in the Land Registry, you will have to prove that you are heir with the death certificate and will, declaration of heirs, etc.. You can also ask for the receipts of the IBI in case there is any pending payment.
Ask for information at the Department of Agriculture or Territorial Service of Agriculture, and, proving that you are the heir, request a certificate on the basic payment rights (CAP) – numbering and value – that are in the name of the deceased.
With the death certificate and accrediting the legitimate interest in the inheritance, the notary database can be consulted, which has kept since 2007 all types of deeds: for example, mercantile policies, mortgage loan guarantees, mercantile policies, or operations with companies.
