My father died leaving his car as property. Am I obliged to have an inheritance deed established?

When the patrimony is less than 5 000 €, it is possible for the heirs to prove their quality by a signed certificate of all of them.

However, it can only be used for the execution of provisional deeds in connection with the succession or the closure of the deceased 's accounts.However, in order to use this car or to sell it, you must obtain the registration of the vehicle in your name.

To do this, the prefecture will ask you for an inheritance deed established by a notary.
