According to Municipal Ordinance, ownership of a grave must fall to a living person.
The transfer of ownership of graves, which hold the same status as other goods and property, is governed by Inheritance Law and based on whether the inheritance is testate (included in a will) or intestate (not included in a will).
Other types of transfer include:
- Provisional: when no direct inheritance can be proved with regard to the owner
- Transfer between relatives when the grave is transferred while the owner is still alive
- Transfer by appointment when the new owner is appointed by the previous owner
