There are several reasons that can lead any citizen to not want to accept an inheritance. The main ones? The debts that many heirs encounter when they become aware of the inheritance. Another of the main reasons to reject an inheritance is that the heir cannot pay the inheritance tax. Thus, in these cases in which, mainly, what could be received are debts of the deceased, the question arises, can an inheritance be renounced?
The answer to this question is clear. Yes, it is possible to reject the inheritance. Knowing this, the heir must also be aware of the following: if an inheritance is renounced, everything is rejected, not only the debts.
Let us see an example of the above. In inheritance a person is going to receive a house (without mortgage) and the debts of the deceased amounted, for example, to a value of 20.000€. If the heir decides not to accept the inheritance, he/she will not have to assume the payment of that debt of 20.000€ that the deceased had pending to pay, but he/she will not be able to receive the house either, since, rejecting the inheritance, he/she would not have the right to such property.
