Law (general)
French term or phrase: prise de qualite
From a French will. After the section called "Qualites Hereditaires" where they establish the heirs' status as legitimate heirs, the document then talks about the "Declarations des requerants" (requerants being the
heirs in this case) and it says, "Les requerants affirment, sans prise de qualite, qu'ils ont vocation a recueillir l'integralite de la succession de la personne decedee"

I'm not clear on the "sans prise de qualite" part. I'm assuming the "qualite" refers again to their "status" as heirs, but what does the "prise" mean here? Any thoughts would be appreciated!

  -> yes indeed, crh, and thanks.

agree  writeaway: I goofed about the meaning of avoir vocation à but to have the correct answer you must include beneficium inventarii as part of the answer. it is a key element.
