1. The heir shall have the right to refuse the inheritance in favor of other persons from among the heirs by will or heirs by law of any order who are not deprived of the inheritance (clause 1 of Article 1119), including in favor of those who are called to inherit under the right of representation or hereditary transmission (Article 1156). The refusal in favor of any of the specified persons is not allowed: from property inherited by will, if all the property of the testator is bequeathed to the heirs appointed by him; from the mandatory share in the inheritance (Article 1149); if the heir is a heir subchapter (article 1121). 2. Refusal of inheritance in favor of persons not specified in paragraph 1 of this article shall not be allowed.

However, if the heir is called to inherit simultaneously for several reasons (by will and by law or by way of hereditary transmission and as a result of opening the inheritance, etc.), he is entitled to refuse the inheritance due to him on one of these grounds, on several of them or on all grounds.
