Article 1164. The common property of the heirs.

In case of inheritance by law, if the hereditary property passes to two or more heirs, and if it is inherited by a will, if it is bequeathed to two or more heirs without specifying the specific property inherited by each of them, the hereditary property is received from the date of opening the inheritance into the common equity property of the heirs. The provisions of Chapter 16 of the General Share Ownership Code, taking into account the rules of Articles 1165-1170 of this Code, shall apply to the common property of the heirs to the estate. However, when dividing inherited property, the rules of articles 1168-1170 of this Code shall be applied within three years from the date of opening the inheritance.
