Article 1139. Testamentary Laying.

1. A testator may, in a will, impose on one or several heirs under a will or by law the obligation to perform an action of a material or non-property nature, aimed at the realization of a generally useful purpose (testamentary assignment). The same obligation may be imposed on the executor of the will, provided that a part of the inheritance property is allocated in the will for execution of the testamentary charge. The testator also has the right to impose on one or several heirs the obligation to keep pets belonging to the testator, as well as to exercise the necessary supervision and care for them. 2. To the testamentary charge, the subject of which are actions of a property nature, the rules of Article 1138 of this Code are applied accordingly. 3. Interested persons, the executor of the will and any of the heirs shall have the right to demand the execution of the testamentary charge in a court of law, unless otherwise provided for by the will.
