Chapter 23 THE IMPACT OF THE EU SUCCESSION REGULATION ON BELGIAN LAW
Restricted access

This chapter gives an overview of the implications of the Succession Regulation for Belgian law at the time of the Regulation's entry into force. It outlines how the Succession Regulation tied in with the existing Belgian framework for some key elements, such as the use of the last habitual residence of the deceased as main connecting factor, while it brought about a fundamental shift for other aspects, including choice of law in case of forced heirship and a comprehensive certificate of succession. Subsequent legislative changes, in particular those implemented by the Law of 6 July 2017 (private international succession law; register for certificates of succession) and the Law of 31 July 2017 (substantive succession law), fall outside the ambit of this chapter.
