German to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Law (general) / testament
German term or phrase:Verfügung
"die nachgenannte Verfügung von Todes wegen wird Ihnen hiermit eröffnet". There are a great deal of interpretations of "Verfügungen" to be found in the Proz Glossary but none that fit this bill. I was thinking of "dispositions due to death" or along those lines. Any better ideas?
Explanation: is the judicial determination of the validity of a will by a court of competent jurisdiction and subsequent supervision over distribution of the estate. A gift of real property is called a DEVISE, being received by the DEVISEE. A gift of personal property is a BEQUEST, the recipient is the BENEFICIARY. The process of property transfer with a valid will in place is called VOLUNTARY ALIENATION.
You are hereby notified that probate has been opened by this court.
No need to talk about death because probate exclusively concerns the will of testators (deceased individuals).
