Many judicial systems view a person’s nationality as their primary trait. This emphasis on nationality often dictates inheritance rules, even though inheritance is deeply personal.
Dual Nationality: A Challenge in Inheritance Matters
However, dual or multiple nationalities introduce challenges. In these situations, the applicable law often ties to where the deceased worked or lived the most.
Common Law Systems and Their Approach
Countries like the US, Romania, and Switzerland, with common law systems, determine inheritance laws based on the deceased’s last known residence. Additionally, the location of the property, especially real estate, plays a crucial role. Most places dictate that real estate inheritance follows the laws of the property’s location.
