Kate (a guest user) asked this question:

Language pair:

French > English


Law / Certificates

Level of diffculty:

Easy / medium

Word or term in question:

la charge testamentaire/successorale


la charge contenue dans le testament

étant légalement tenue par la charge testamentaire

il ne saurait passer outre la charge successorale

elle est liée par la charge successorale

elle n'a pas le droit de s'en séparer en vertu de la charge testamentaire déjà évoquée.

partager ce montant pour moitié avec les Héritiers [nom] en contre-partie de la levée de la charge

The best way to translate this? Inheritance buden? Or is there a better way to word this?


thx in advance

Charge testamentaire = testator's bond provisions (?) : charge successorale = succession / inheritance load (or burden).

My comment:

"Charge testamentaire" and "charge successorale" are two different ideas: "charge testamentaire" are all the liabilities (expenses, having to help financially or physically the widow(er), etc.) imposed on the heir(ess) by the testator himself, whereas "charge successorale" is all the expenses (taxes, paying off the debts of the deceased,...) imposed by the law.
