The reserved portion limits the application of deceased’s will by reserving a portion of the estate to certain categories of heirs, called ‘mandatory heirs’ (‘héritiers réservataires’).

While settling the estate, gifts made by the deceased will be taken into account in two situations:
1) Where there exists at least two heirs and one of them has received a gift; and
2) Where the deceased leaves at least one mandatory heir (‘héritier réservataire’).
