The legacy is a clause of the will through which the author of a will bequeath all or part of their good to one or several beneficiaries after their death. State-approved associations or foundations, such as the och Foundation, can be named as beneficiaries for legacies, without paying inheritance tax.
You can choose to bequeath movable goods (furniture, jewels, art pieces, a sum of money, an investment portfolio) or real property (land, house, flat).
For the legacy by original title and the specific legacy, forced heirs remain beneficiaries of an irreducible part of the inheritance, which cannot be part of the legacy.
To be legally valid, the will must be hand written, dated and signed (holograph will), or dictated to a notary, in the face of witnesses (authentic will).
We recommend you contact a notary, who will guarantee the respect of your last wills.
You can modify or cancel your will any time.
For more information, you can contact Pascale Diverrez, who is Responsible for legacies and donations and will answer all your questions in strict secrecy.
