About EU Succession

The European Union Succession Regulation No 650/2012 entered into force on 17 August 2015 covering all successions in European Union Members States (with the exception of Denmark, the United Kingdom and Ireland). The Regulation comprehensively covers the substantive succession law as well as the specific procedural law and the law concerning recognition and enforcement of the relevant judicial awards. The Regulation applies to ''cross-border“ succession i.e. cases where the citizen of one Member State died in another Member State where he or she owned movable or immovable assets. Based on the Regulation, the applicable law now follows uniform rules, meaning the historic legal fragmentation within Europe will be eliminated in the future. This magisterial new text offers a comprehensive analysis of the new regulation, providing an authoritative guide to the new European succession framework.


“The present Commentary adds another voice to the European concerto which so far features commentaries from Germany, Austria, Belgium/Switzerland, Italy/Germany/Spain and Spain. This makes for a very interesting symphony.” –  Prof Dr Peter Mankowski, Zeitschrift zum Gemeinschaftsprivatrecht - GPR

“[R]ecommended as offering a careful and sensible legal assessment of the provisions of the Regulation that all succession practitioners will find extremely useful in understanding the subtleties of the 2012 European legislation: it is also extremely useful for academics involved in succession or in cross-border property disputes falling within the scope of the Regulation.” –  Jonathan Fitchen, University of Aberdeen, Edinburgh Law Review
