When a person dies, that does not mean that creditors will not receive their payments. If the inheritance is positive and has been accepted by the heir(s), the claim can be asserted against the heir(s).
First of all, we check with the residents’ registration office whether the person in question has actually died and determine the date of death and place of death. We find the potential heirs of the deceased through the competent local court and inform you about disclaimers of inheritance.
To retrieve the data about the death, residents’ registration offices require proof of a legitimate interest in the form of titles, enforcement orders or outstanding claims.
