Re: Declaration of heirs

May I assume you are speaking about a "declaration of death and heirship." That is an affidavit which is attached to a succession. If the property you want to sell is immoveable, that is a house and/or land or other permanent structures, then you should open a succession. With that the heirs are recognized as owners and they can sell the property. The cost is usually around 3% of the gross succession or $500 whichever is greater, and court costs of anywhere from $300 to $500. If the property is only a car or other vehicle or vehicles, then the DMV has a form the heirs can sign and they can sell the vehicle that way.
