Claiming an Unclaimed Succession Held by Revenu Québec
Claimants must complete the form entitled Declaration of Heredity and Transmission by Death and send it to Revenu Québec’s Direction principale des biens non réclamés. Revenu Québec will inform claimants of the documents they will have to provide to claim the succession.
If a successor renounced a succession and subsequently wants to claim it, he or she must contact a notary. The notary will draw up an act of renunciation, which will be recorded in the register of personal and movable real rights (RDPRM). In addition, the successor must complete the Declaration of Heredity and Transmission by Death form.
