Heirs of the third order according to the law

The heirs of the third order, in accordance with the law, are the grandparents of the testator and their descending relatives.

If all grandfathers and grandmothers are alive by the time of the opening of the inheritance, they will inherit all the inheritance in equal shares.

If by the time of opening of inheritance the grandfather or the grandmother on the father’s, or on the mother’s side of family is not alive, his/her the descending relatives take his/her place. If he/she does not have any relatives, his/her share is inherited by the grandfather or grandmother on the same side, respectively.

If the second grandfather or grandmother is not alive, his/her descending relatives inherit. If at the time of the opening of the inheritance there is no alive grandfather and grandmother on the father’s, or on the mother’s side of family and there are no descending relatives, then the grandfather and grandmother on the other side of family or their descending relatives inherit.

If the descending relatives take the place of their parents, the provisions relating to the heirs of the first order shall apply.
