Declaration of Causa Mortis Transmissions (Dikjarazzjoni ta’ Trasferiment Causa Mortis)

The Declaration of Causa Mortis Transmissions, or 'Dikjarazzjoni ta' Trasferiment Causa Mortis', is a critical legal process in Maltese law, particularly concerning the transmission of property upon the death of an individual.

Causa Mortis transmission refers to the transfer of property that occurs upon the death of a property owner, as specified in their will or according to the laws of intestate succession ab intestato. This process requires a formal declaration to legally transfer the property to the rightful heirs or legatees as well as payment of any relevant succession duty. Our role is to ensure that this declaration is carried out accurately, respecting the wishes of the deceased and in accordance with Maltese law. We will give a comprehensive review of the deceased’s will, if available, and an assessment of the applicable laws of succession to identify the rightful heirs.

We specialize in handling these sensitive and complex transactions with the utmost care and legal proficiency.​

At Sceberras Trigona Notaries & Associates, we ensure that the transfer of property is conducted smoothly and in compliance with the deceased’s wishes and Maltese law.
