Service Details


This service is available across Romania

Who Is This Service For?

  • This service is directed at both Romanian citizens and foreigners with inheritance interests in Romania. 
  • It is designed for individuals who are either direct heirs, such as family members entitled to inherit assets under Romanian law, or those who believe they have a rightful claim to a portion of an estate based on familial ties.
Who Is This Service For?


  • Key Legislation: The inheritance process in Romania is guided by several laws, including:
    • Law no. 105/1992 on the resolution of international inheritance cases.
    • Organic Law no. 312/2005, detailing the conditions under which foreign citizens can inherit land in Romania, specifically through inheritance.
    • The Code of Civil Procedure, Article 193, defines the entities responsible for processing inheritance cases​​.
  • Tax Implications: An inheritance tax is imposed at a rate of 1% on the estate's value if the inheritance procedure is initiated more than two years after the death of the decedent. Otherwise, Romanian inheritance tax does not apply​​.


  1. Legal Consultation and Representation: Offering guidance on drafting and signing wills in compliance with Romanian laws and representing clients in inheritance disputes or asset division cases​​.

  4. Navigating Public Notary Procedures: Facilitating the inheritance process through the public notary in the region or city where the deceased had their last residence, as per legal requirements​​.
