My mother wishes to give my brothers property. Previously she had given me a property. The notaire advises us to reintegrate my old donation in a division and this in the interest of the family. Is it true ?

Indeed, integrating an old simple donation into a division has certain advantages:

  • This reintegration can make it possible to rebalance the values of the goods donated by the donor to each of his children. Upon his death there will be no re-evaluation of the donations;
  • the donor may change the initial allocation of assets ;
  • it is not essential that the division involves property other than those that are reinstated;
  • the division makes a definitive division of the goods given between its beneficiaries;
  • this sharing can not be called into question on the death of the donor.
