Forced Heirs Law in Puerto Rico – An Introduction

Dear Subscriber:

Very truly yours,

    in Puerto rico when both parents are dead does the land property go equally to the surviving children and do the grandchildren have any rights to that land property with or without a will

      Thank you for posting your question.

      Without a will, the children automatically become the heirs. If one of the children passed away before his/her parent, then the grandchildren will take their parent’s palce as heirs.

      Through a will, a person may name his or her grandchildren as heirs up to a point, since there is a minimum amount of participation which a parent must recognize to his or her children.

      If you need more details, you would need to recur to a lawyer of your choice. The information above is a limited general description and must not be taken as providing you with legal opinion at all.
