Deputies of the State Duma in the third final reading adopted the law on the joint will, which will allow spouses to bequeath community property. This is stated in the message of the lower house of Parliament.
Now the couple by mutual consent will be able to bequeath the jointly acquired property to any person; to change the share to the heirs; to determine the property included in the succession mass, provided that the decision does not violate the rights of a third party.
However, this will may not be approved by the state, if the spouses are divorced or the marriage was invalid. Also this decision will not affect the death of a spouse.
In advance of the agreement on the procedure of transfer of the property will reduce the number of conflicts related to inheritance, I think the author of the document. The new law will take effect June 1, 2019, following approval by the Federation Council and signing by the President.
Yet the Russian jurisdiction recognizes a will made by one person. Inheritance, in turn, is in accordance with the will of the testator. When there is no will, then the estate passes to the relatives of the deceased according to the priority based on the degree of kinship.
