INHERITANCE LAWS IN PORTUGAL, MADEIRA

edited December 1969 in General
Hi,

I have an issue where some land has been inherited by 3 siblings. The eldest and youngest descendants want to sell, however the middle child / descendant does not wish to do so and has been told that because he is the middle child he has no say / rights. If the land is now in the name of all 3 can the middle child / descendant be cut out of all decision making regarding this land? The will left by the parents states that all assets are to be left to the 3 children / descendants and distributed equally. Any and all information provided is very much appreciated.

Comments

  • Apparently under Portugeuse law ALL siblings would need to agree to sell. Many properties are left standing empty because one person is not in agreement to sell or cannot be traced in order for agreement to be obtained.
  • How about having the land valued and the middle child "buying out" the oldest and youngest descendants.
