Inheriting real estate and bequeathing real estate: Avoiding conflicts and stumbling blocks
High values arouse desires: within the family - and with the state. Reason enough to address the sensitive topic of "inheritance" within the family at an early stage and to make a good plan.
By acting with foresight, you can avoid difficult situations when inheriting real estate.
Avoid at all costs: Selling real estate under time pressure
Keep in mind that the market value of a property to be inherited is based on the exact market value as of the balance sheet date in accordance with §194 of the German Building Code (BauGB). If - due to lack of preparation - sufficient liquid funds are not available, the sale of one or more properties is mandatory. But a property sale under time pressure should be avoided.
