List of uncollected inheritances
We understand succession as the means by which a person takes or occupies the place of another with respect to his rights, that is to say, it implicitly carries the substitution of a person with respect to the ownership of rights and obligations, by another person who will acquire them in the absence of the first one. In the case of the death of a person, we are in front of a succession of specifically hereditary character, that is to say, that it is regarding the inheritance of the person who dies, which can be made on all the assets of the de cujus, or on certain assets, which are called legacies.
Although some authors, such as the aforementioned Asprón Pelayo, consider that there is a mixed succession, which is that which is partly testamentary and partly legitimate, because the testator did not dispose of all of his assets by means of a will. However, some consider that it should not be subclassified as mixed, but simply as two different ones, where one part is testamentary and the other, by exclusion, is not. This is so, especially if we consider that in legal practice, when this occurs, a probate proceeding is usually dismissed in the part that corresponds to one of the two types of succession, and continues with the other, and the judge does not declare the mixed succession open.
An executor can change the will
Due date for filing the return. File Form 1040 or 1040-SR by April 18, 2022. The due date is April 18 instead of April 15 because of the Emancipation Day holiday in the District of Columbia, even if you do not live in the District of Columbia. If you live in Maine or Massachusetts, you have until April 19, 2022. That’s because of the Patriots’ Day holiday in those states. For more information, see Chapter 1, below.

Executor may sell
The loss of a loved one is a difficult time for family, relatives and friends. In addition, survivors often have to figure out how to transfer or inherit the assets of the person who died. The assets that a person leaves behind when he or she dies are called the “decedent’s estate”. The “decedent” is the person who died. His or her “estate” is the property he or she had when he or she died.

Any part of the estate that can no longer be transferred informally will probably have to be transferred in probate court. How the estate is transferred depends in part on whether the decedent died with or without a will.
Grounds for Removal of Executor
A will is a written document that contains a person’s wishes about how he or she wants his or her property or things, rights and obligations (including debts) to be divided upon death. In making a will there is freedom – although it is limited – as to how the estate is to be divided.
The person who makes a will is known as the testator or testatrix. Despite the freedom a testator has to distribute his or her assets, there are people who by law cannot be left out, with some exceptions, because they are forced heirs.
Prior to November 28, 2020, date on which the new Civil Code of Puerto Rico went into effect, the persons who are forced heirs are the descendants (sons or daughters, or if there are no sons or daughters, grandsons or granddaughters) or ascendants (fathers, mothers, grandfathers or grandmothers) when there are no sons or daughters. These persons must be left at least a part of the inheritance, known as the “legítima”. The widow or widower is also a compulsory heir by means of the usufruct of the estate.
