Unconditional Heirs Law and Legal Definition

Unconditional heirs are heirs who inherit property without any reservation, or without making any inventory.

The following is an example of a case law on unconditional heir:

Unconditional heir is an heir who, after arriving at the age of majority, either expressly or tacitly accepts the succession unconditionally, that is, without the benefit of inventory, thereby binds himself for the debts or obligations of the deceased person, the same as if he himself had contracted them. Among the obligations for which an unconditional heir is liable is the obligation of warranty, on the part of the deceased person, to defend a title that he has conveyed. [Berry v. Wagner, 151 La. 456 (La. 1922)].
