|A community will most frequently used is the Berliner Testament. It has advantages and disadvantages that can be sketched here only briefly.|
The Berliner Testament is not like this, but probably there because it can be used on only in Berlin, Institute of law has been developed as a. The spouses use each other as heirs. After the death of the survivor falls section 2269 BGB, the mutual reduction as uniform discount to a third party. The purpose consists in the following: the children inherit the fortune of the parents until after the death of both spouses. Such a disposal has the advantage that it is not limited in the disposition of the estate for the surviving spouse. In the event of the death of the second parent, the assets of both parents shall pass as total assets on the descendants. A particular circumstance of the Berliner Testament is that the (newly) married spouse is reserved portion entitled against the surviving spouse in the event of remarriage. Children emerge from the recent marriage, these are also entitled to compulsory portion. Therefore reduces the claims of the children from his first marriage. To prevent this, the Testament is connected with a remarriage clause , can this be prevented.
The will usually order a forfeiture clause of part of mandatory is completed to ensure that the surviving spouse in available on the estate is not limited and can therefore freely dispose. The purpose to give the power over the entire assets of the previous death ends the surviving spouse, the reserved portion beneficiaries, especially children, can frustrate otherwise, by them at the death of the first deceased spouse the Require compulsory portion.
Ecclesiastical orders in a community will built by spouses are also unilaterally resolved without another after divorce, provided they are still effective, (case-law). § 2268 II BGB says his wording only, that testamentary dispositions after dissolution of marriage continue to apply. Another question is whether they, as far as they are schoolchildren, unilaterally can be lifted. the section 2268 II BGB his wording to not answer. An answer to the question of whether schoolchildren dispositions remain exceptionally unrepeatable after divorce, also do not immediately arises from § 2271 I 2 BGB. Because there is only the inadmissibility of lifting diethylstilbestrol dispositions by a spouse the speech; the provision is applicable only in cases where there is still a marriage.
The Berliner Testament can trigger adverse inheritance tax if the allowances for children will expire unused. If the spouse is already the co-owner of assets, the problem is eliminated in so far, as he no longer will inherit that, what he already has.
|Examples of text for the Berliner Testament (by hand writing!):Our last will and testament UK

Descendants of children who have asserted the reserved portion may not legacy.
In the event that one of our children from the estate of to initial death ends requires its mandatory part, want it to receive only the compulsory portion from the estate after the death of the to last but not least death ends.
3. all provisions of this Testament are schoolchildren, as far as nothing else is determined. They can be modified only jointly or eliminated through cancellation.
4. the value of our pure counted together, present we give… DM’s.
|Inheritance renunciation at Berliner testament The final heir to a Berliner Testament (2269 § BGB) may move only the inheritance pursuant to § 1946 BGB, if he has become heir; he will until the death of longer living spouses (see BGH – judgment v. 8, 10 1997 – IV ZR 236/96).|
|Supplementary interpretation of a will 1. the complementary interpretation of a testament be also considered if the testator is wrong about the conditions at the time of the establishment of the Testament. That’s whether the time limit for contesting the testamentary disposal has expired, does not arrive.
2. the complementary interpretation is to set out first and foremost to the recognizable from the available destination of the deceased. She can cause that a decision taken in the Testament is to be considered void.

|Important to the testamentary capacity Vogel (from 14.09.2001 – 1 ZBR 124/00):
A mental illness of the deceased does not preclude the validity of his testamentary disposal if they are with the disease do not always and is not influenced by her. An expert opinion on the question of testamentary capacity must contain therefore designs to whether and to what extent a mental illness had on the insight – and decision-making ability of the deceased. It’s not crucial arrives after the Court on the diagnosis of an organic disorder, but on the degree and extent of detectable psycho pathological symptoms. It is the Court, whether the term of testamentary capacity is satisfied through the remarks of the expert. It is therefore flawed when it assumes only its designs to the diagnosis of a mental illness.

in the testament
|General information No Member should write the Testament, even if subsequently put a signature on it. A surrogate Testament is ineffective.|
|Autograph testament An autograph Testament must be signed by the testator. The initial self-designation of the deceased in connection with an Addressable does not meet these requirements. This principle also applies to the drawing of the name on the edge of a testament document. However, no space is more for the signing on the relevant journal and the signature of the testator, placed next to the text is therefore the certificate as spatial termination, the formal requirements for an autograph will are met (OLG Cologne- 05.11.1999-2 WX 37/99).
The testator signed a letter addressed to his children with “Your father”, so this does not preclude the validity of a testamentary disposition made in the letter. Prerequisite for the effectiveness of a letter will be that the deceased with the Declaration contained in a letter to actually build a testament. The declarations set out in a certificate corresponding to the formal requirements of a handwritten Testament externally must be based on a serious testamentary will of the testator. Because the drafting of a will is not the usual practice in form of a letter, are strict requirements to provide proof of testamentary will. So it was decided by the case-law, is whether began saying “You will inherit it and that” a last will and Testament available or only a declaration of intent. A true interpretation is an intricateness problem depends on many circumstances of individual cases.
Requirements for a will – beware of ‘Crystallization’
A will can according to the regional court of Munich I – AZ.: 16 T 17192/03 – not from several loose slips of paper with lyrics exist, which show no relation. The stack of 13 leaves, which was found in the kitchen of a deceased elderly woman and a small slip of paper identified as «Testament», not encountered the good pleasure of the judge. Only a hand bore a date and the signature of the woman. Three pieces of paper had a different format and was also in contrast to the other papers on both sides described. According to the judge, the Testament is ineffective, because the leaves not with a related text are described and also the numbering is missing.
|Strikeout marks in the testament Has deleted the testator in a will through orders, so the presumption of the repeal will (section 2255, sentence 2 BGB) as refuted can be viewed, if it is established that the deletions were merely preparing a new testament, content in the same provisions should be taken back (Vogel, decision v 7 7 1997 – 1Z BR 118/97)|
|Mixed form If the text of the Testament composed by hand written and typescript parts, the form prescribed for a holographic will is not respected. Except that the hand-written parts are alone a comprehensive last will and Testament available for themselves (OLG Celle – transpose – 22 W 108/01).|
|Write it yourself!An autograph will can be built only by a hand-written statement by the deceased. A will signed by the testator, is sufficient to not this form on the writing of the text the hand of the testator is so conducted that the lettering will be shaped by a third party (OLG Hamm – 11.09.2001 – 15 W 224/01).|
|Fake?Are due to the circumstances no serious doubt in my mind that a testator has written a private written Testament itself, so the trial judge is not obliged to obtain the opinion of a font expert to the authenticity of the Testament. The same applies to OLG Munich (1 Z BR 169/97) even if the Testament in individual relationships exhibit abnormalities.|
|Notaries must instruct in deed a contract does not have any design options
A notary public must not advise on the possibility of a return transfer clause at certification a donation contract without a special occasion. It is according to the Indescribableness Bamberger (2.2.2004, 4 U 136/03) not the task of a notary, as “Life Adviser” of the parties to be active and with his instruction to cover all General risks, resulting from the vicissitudes of life and the can result in personal relationships of those involved.The applicant had given a plot of land to her now deceased son. The defendant had notarized the land contract. After the death of son, his wife inherited the land. As this is a new partnership and broke off relations with the applicant, she regretted this donation. The applicant was of the opinion that the defendant of her son’s death would need to teach them about the possibility of a return transfer clause in the event. Her a loss in value of the land was caused by this breach of duty. Their claim for damages was unsuccessful both before the LG and the OLG.The Court considers, the notary has not violated his notification duty. Pursuant to § 17 ABS. 1 Berk notary must indeed explore the will of the parties, clarify the facts and educate the parties about the legal implications of the business to Brandenburg. Against this, the defendant has not violated but. He was charged only with the certification of a donation agreement. The assignment contract designed by the defendants corresponded to the will of the parties, this targeted. The defendant was no reason to raise the risk of premature death of the son, and to stimulate measures for this. Notaries must not act as “Life Adviser” of the parties involved. The notary can not cope with his notification duty General risks that might result from the vicissitudes of life and personal relations of the parties.
