The e-beneficiary will enter our lives at the beginning of February putting an end to the long waiting lines for citizens, lawyers and notaries.
“The unified inheritance certificate” is the digital integration of the documents which confirm or infirm the existence of a legal relationship pertaining to inheritance rights, namely the electronic certificate which replaces four certificates.
The certificate will be obtained by a simple click via the site solon.gov.gr, in a first phase for the courts which are connected to the Integrated System of Civil and Criminal Justice Case Management (OSDDY-PP). For the courts which have yet to be integrated in the system, the citizen will submit the application via the Citizens’ Affairs Centers or by presenting themselves at the court’s secretariat.
The plan for this project was adopted during the summer and unifies – digitizes the following certificates:
- a) The certificate regarding the renunciation or not of an inheritance from the Magistrate’s office or the Court of First Instance;
- b) The certificate regarding the publication or not of a will from the Magistrate’s office or the Court of First Instance;
- c) The certificate regarding the contestation – dispute of inheritance rights from the Court of First Instance; and
- d) The certificate regarding the pronouncement or not of an inheritance right from the Magistrate’s Court.
According to the description in the justificative report, “these certificates serve, amongst others, a functional purpose, namely pertaining to the notification of the real situation which is created after the succession to the competent Public Revenue Agency or the notary, to finalize the acts required by law, which renders their unification conducive. This facilitates physical persons, businesses, notaries, lawyers, engineers and other categories of persons, it saves time and reduces the inconveniences incurred for the acquisition of various certificates which confirm the legal relationships that arise from this life event”.
