Liquidating a succession without following the rules of the Civil Code of Québec
In some cases you may settle a succession without following these steps. For example, you may do this if the heirs ask you not to make an inventory of the deceased’s property because they believe the succession is solvent.
You can only agree to this if all the heirs are in agreement.
In such a case the heirs are liable for all the succession’s debts, including those they did not know existed.
Please consult a legal advisor for further information on the consequences of not applying the rules set out in the Civil Code of Québec.
