The inheritance of the property of a dead person is considered and decided from the religious standpoints. It is the sapiṇḍa relationship that clinches the matter of inheritance. The person who inherits the property is obliged to perform the śrāddha and other obsequial ceremonies regularly. For this he has to set apart a share of as much as 50% from the part of the inherited property. The dharmaśāstras contain exhaustive details about this subject. There are different schools of thought also.
