Inheritance in Japan

In Japan, if a deceased person owns real estate (land, house, condominium, villa, farmland, etc.), he/she needs to prepare very many official and registration documents to be submitted to the Legal Affairs Bureau.

First, check to see if there is a dispute between the heirs.

If there is no dispute, you can start the procedure without any problem, but if not, you may have to start the procedure using the court in some cases.

Translated with (free version)

When procrastination places that burden on future generations, it often does not make it easy to discuss the division of property with people who may not have been involved in the process before.
At such times, requesting a judicial scrivener can often provide a smooth solution.

Procedures for registering inheritance in Japan

Show us your materials and provide us with a quotation.

If you can provide us with a certificate of title (or information identifying the cause of registration), a property tax notice, and personal identification documents by e-mail or fax, we can calculate the approximate cost of registration.

Determination of heirs by ordering family registers

We obtain family registers on behalf of deceased persons from the time of their birth.
Through careful and prompt research, we determine who will be the legal heirs.

After discussing the method of dividing the estate, a representative is determined, and that person signs and seals the consent documents.

The personal seals and seal registration certificates of all signers are required.

Apply to the Legal Affairs Bureau as soon as the documents are ready.

The application takes about one week to complete, and the new information identifying the cause of registration (which replaces the old certificate of title) is delivered to the client to complete the work.
