The inheritance in Poland may be encumbered with the debts of the deceased, which may exceed the total economic value of the inheritance.
With the acceptance of the Polish heritage, the heir enters the estate of the deceased.
He takes over the legacy with the whole fortune, but also with all the debts that are attached to it.
However, you have the option of rejecting the inheritance. In order to do so, you should submit a declaration of rejection of the Polish inheritance before the Polish court of inheritance or submit a written declaration of resignation before obtaining a certificate from a Polish notary public.
Foreigners affected by inheritance law in Poland can use the services of lawyers specializing in inheritance law.
