Civil Law

Civil law refers to the body of law that deals with private disputes between individuals or organizations. It encompasses various branches of law such as contract law, property law, and tort law.


Inheritance: Inheritance refers to the process by which property, assets, and rights are transferred from a deceased person (the decedent) to their heirs or beneficiaries. It involves the distribution of the decedent’s estate according to legal rules or a valid will.

          Inheritance is a fundamental aspect of civil law, given its significance in transferring rights and obligations upon the death of a person who held those rights. When an individual passes away, their rights cease to exist, and the institution of inheritance comes into play. Inheritance facilitates the transfer of these rights and regulates the process in accordance with legal provisions. The main objective of inheritance law is to determine the beneficiaries and the property that will pass on to them.

In the realm of inheritance law, we provide legal advice on both intestate and testamentary inheritance, specifically in relation to wills. We offer guidance on the appropriate circumstances for invoking these rights, reasons for contesting or declaring a will as null and void, and the legal rights of heirs. We can assist in ensuring that the transfer of property to heirs occurs in accordance with the applicable legal framework.

Additionally, we offer advice on testamentary inheritance, including information on the two types of wills, their drafting, and the validity of a will. We can address queries regarding the beneficiaries of a will, actions to take in the event of a contested will, and the implications of an invalid will.

Please note that for specific cases, it is essential to consider the individual circumstances involved to provide accurate and tailored legal advice.


Legal succession: Legal succession refers to the process by which the property, rights, and obligations of a deceased person are transferred to their heirs in accordance with the rules of inheritance and applicable laws. It determines who will inherit the decedent’s assets and how they will be divided among the heirs.


Testamentary inheritance: Testamentary inheritance, also known as inheritance under a will, occurs when a person makes a legally valid will specifying how their property and assets should be distributed after their death. The terms of the will dictate who the beneficiaries are and how the inheritance should be distributed.


Real estate:

          Acquiring the rights to real property involves the obligation to register the property in accordance with the Civil Code. Real property, when transferred through legal actions like sale contracts, donations, or exchange contracts, necessitates registration to maintain transparency and ensure that no more rights are transferred than the owner possesses.


We can provide legal advice on the acquisition of real property and the registration process. Our guidance will cover the appropriate legal and administrative procedures required to register assets with the State Agency of Real Property Assets. Additionally, we can assist in cases where there are multiple legal owners of a property, offering solutions to address and resolve such complex ownership situations.


Our aim is to provide comprehensive and personalized legal advice to ensure that the transfer and registration of real property rights adhere to legal requirements and proceed in the most appropriate manner.


Please keep in mind that every case may have unique complexities, and for accurate and precise legal advice, we recommend consulting with us directly to address your specific circumstances.


  • Transaction: A real estate transaction involves the buying, selling, or transferring of real property (land, buildings, or any immovable property) between parties. It typically includes activities such as negotiation, contract drafting, due diligence, and closing the sale or transfer.


  • Real estate registration: Real estate registration is the process of officially recording and documenting the ownership and details of a property with the appropriate government authority. It provides legal proof of ownership and helps establish clear title to the property.


Co-ownership: Co-ownership refers to the situation where two or more individuals or entities jointly own a property. Each co-owner has a shared interest in the property and may have rights and responsibilities regarding its use, management, and sharing of profits or expenses.
