The inheritance registration to join together in the future
When we owned real estate of land and building and die, it is necessary to apply to Legal Affairs Bureau (registry office) having jurisdiction over real estate for the registration of "proprietary rights move by the inheritance".
When we succeed and do not register, right relations are complicated, and various demerits, "expense of the inheritance registration becomes large" may produce "we cannot sell real estate immediately".
We value own right and recommend the early inheritance registration for next-generation children.
