Any property held in France, whether real estate or financial, enters in the declaration of succession to be established within 6 months (or one year in some cases) after the death of the parent.
The heirs are required to declare the inheritance and also to pay taxes in France. This is also the case of non-residents people who inherit in France.
For this formality, many documents have to be provided to the notary and it is necessary to ask a valuation of real estate properties.
