According to articles 725, 726 and 727 of the Peruvian Civil code, if someone has only surviving brothers and sisters, he or she may freely dispose of 100% of the estate. Regards RGB
Let's consider a deceased person who dies with no will, and with no surviving husband or descendants or ascendants. The deceased had four brothers, all deceased. Three of the brothers have surviving children. How do you calculate who are the heirs in such a case?
Would the court divide the deceased's assets into three parts corresponding to the three brothers with living children? Would each one of those three parts then be distributed equally among the living children of each deceased brother? Or would instead the court take all of the surviving children of those three deceased brothers and divide the entire estate in equal parts among them?
