Did you know? Your spouse does not automatically inherit from you. Without a will, a surviving spouse does not automatically inherit their deceased spouse’s property in full ownership. A surviving spouse is entitled to have usufruct over the decedent’s property. A usufruct does not give a usufructuary the right to transfer or mortgage property.
