It should be emphasized that the heir does not have the opportunity to legislate in the Russian Federation in part. That is, if the heir enters into an inheritance, then everything he has to be inherited in full. It should be pointed out here that at the same time as the property, all debt obligations are transferred. They are divided among all involved in the inheritance process in equal shares. The right to inherit may not legally be sold or donated.
