Appointment of liquidator

The Liquidator: Who is this and what does this mean?

In cases when the deceased is without a will, a liquidator is appointed (by heir, when possible) to settle the estate of the departed. In cases of testamentary succession, a liquidator is often appointed by the testator.

The act of appointing a liquidator to an estate must be filed and received by notary, ‘en-minute’ to establish the notice of liquidator, as published in the Register of Personal and Movable Real Rights.

If your loved-one passed suddenly and without having a will prepared, having a caring Notary Republic, is crucial!
