Refuse the inheritance
As heir, you also have the option to refuse the inheritance. With this, you decide not to accept the inheritance and renounce it. You are then no longer the heir, even if there is a positive balance. Please note, if you decide to refuse, your (grand)children will become heirs in your place. If you do not want your (grand)children to become heirs, they must also refuse the inheritance. When efusing an inheritance, you are obliged to make a statement to the Court. This is done by signing a form and sending it to the Court.
