-Before opening the heritage opens, according to the law the share of the heir of the deceased passes to their children (Inheritance by the right of representation) and it is equally divided between them. This right does not apply to the children of the heir isolated form the inheritance or deprived of the inheritance by the inheritor.
Comparing the inheritance by the right of representation and the transmission of the inheritance we see that the inheritance by the right of representation takes place only through law, while the transmission of the inheritance can take place in both cases – through law and by inheriting the Testament. In case of the transmission of the inheritance the heir should have been deceased after the death of the inheritor, not managing to receive the heritage, while in case of inheritance by the right of representation the heir is deceased before the heritage is opened, thus dies before the inheritor.
