Estate inventory (Nachlassverzeichnis)

An estate inventory (Nachlassverzeichnis) is required in many situations. For example, an inventory is required when the court seeks to calculate it´s fees for issuing a certificate of inheritance or because the forced heirs ask the testamentary heirs for an inventory as a calculation basis for the forced share. Depending on the reason, the content of the inventory varies. In some instances (e.g. in case that there is an executor of the estate) one can ask a notary to draft the inventory.
