If someone deceases without having any known heirs, not appearing concerned blood related family up to four grade of consanguinity, neither the deceased left a Will granted, then the legitimate heir of those goods happen to be property of the Public Administration. Either the State or the Autonomous Government depending on the case, will proceed to auction the goods as established by the Law in this matter, as well as happens with the refusal of an inheritance. The agency in charge of managing this type of inheritances is the General Direction of Heritage of the State (Dirección General de Patrimonio del Estado).


If by any chance an heir that could not be located by the Administration appeared “a posteriori”, he is entitled to a compensation that usually corresponds to 10% of the value of the goods. If you find yourself in this situation and need help, do not hesitate to contact Focus Legal Abogados to receive legal counselling.
