Legacy and heirs in Ukraine

In resolving the dispute over the inheritance of rights to property that is abroad or with the participation of a foreigner, it is necessary to determine whether there is an agreement on legal aid with this country and whether this agreement does not provide for other rules of inheritance than in the Ukrainian legislation.

In the case of divergences, the rules of an international treaty apply.

The right to inherit immovable property, in accordance with Article 71 of the Law of Ukraine “On Private International Law”, is governed by the legislation of the country in whose territory the property is located.
