The grandson can inherit the property of the testator by will or by the right of presentation (Article 1142 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation). To enter into an inheritance, you must contact the notary office at the last place of residence or at the location of the main share of the property, declare your rights in writing and submit a package of documents for opening an inheritance case.

It is necessary

  • - Your passport;
  • - application to a notary;
  • - documents of the testator;
  • - documents for property;
  • - documents confirming the degree of relationship.


Step 1

If you are a grandchild of the testator, then you have the right to receive an inheritance by right of representation. This means that you have the right to all or part of the inheritance share in the event that you are a child of the main heir or heirs. That is, if your father or mother were heirs of the first order, but they died together with the testator, after the testator, or at the time when the certificate of inheritance had not yet been received, but the rights to it were declared.

Step 2

In this case, you need to declare your rights in writing, present documents for the property and documents confirming the degree of relationship with the testator. You are also required to present a death certificate of the main heir, for whom you will be presented to the inheritance. If you do not have any documents, the notary will make inquiries to all the necessary authorities to help you enter into your legal rights.

Step 3

The division of the inheritance will be carried out between all the heirs of the first order and you. Your share will be exactly the part that your deceased mother or father would have received. For example, the testator had two sons and a wife. The wife inherits half of the property, the other half is divided equally between the sons. If one of the testator's sons was your father and died before the division of the inheritance, then you will inherit part of it. If there are two grandchildren, then each will inherit a part of his father equally, that is, it turns out that the inheritance is divided as if you received a share of your father's property already registered in ownership.

Step 4

In the same way, the grandchildren of other lines of heirs enter the inheritance. If there is no heir to each successive turn, but there are his children, then they have the right to inherit on an equal basis with all heirs in the queue.
