What Responsibilities does a Representative of the Community of Heirs have? 15 Questions and Answers

The time between when a testator dies and when there is a definite distribution of the inheritance may amount to several years, especially when there are disputes between the heirs. If during this time the heirs cannot agree on the necessary administrative procedures regarding the inheritance, and no executor has been appointed in advance, a representative of the community of heirs is often appointed by the competent authority at the request of an heir.
