I accepted a succession purely and simply. I noticed a few months ago that there were debts. Can I finally give up the estate?

The heir , accepting purely and simply the succession, can no longer renounce it.

However, the heir may ask to be relieved of all or part of the debts of the estate if he had legitimate reasons to disregard them at the time of acceptance, when the payment of these debts would have the effect of jeopardizing his Personal property.

The action must be brought within five months of the day on which it became aware of the existence and size of the debt.
