Qualified disclaimer

Qualified disclaimer – within the area of Inheritance Law, this legal phrase refers to the refusal made in writing to accept the pot of inheritance, left by the decedent (the testator) – usually due to tax or debt reasons. The refusal in many legal systems has to be submitted at the Land Register in order to be binding third parties. In some jurisdictions, once the qualified disclaimer is accepted, the inheritance pot goes in possession of the State or the Municipality.
