    How Old Should One Be To Start Inheriting His Parents’ Property? Should One Wait For Them To Die?

    Your parents' property is theirs to do with as they will.  Just because they are your parents does not guarantee that you will be the recipient of all their worldly goods.

    Personally, I would be totally offended if one of my children were to ask me for any part of their inheritance before I died.  Parents may (and do) make gifts before their passing to their children; but, this should be done only if the parent wishes to.  Remember, what you consider to be your inheritance is what your parents are using to maintain their current lifestyle.  Losing any part of it before their passing could reduce their lifestyle.

    An inheritance is supposed to be given to those we love and WANT to have our possessions after we are gone.  Unless your parents die without a will, there is no guarantee you will inherit.

    This is a pretty offensive question, but I'm assuming it was written by someone who doesn't particularly love his/her parents the way most people love theirs.

    When you love your parents the way children usually love their parents, you aren't thinking about what you get from them.  You're thinking about what you can give to them or do for them - because that's what real love is all about.  For people who love parents the way most love their own, there's no way they can even allow themselves to think in terms of their parents' stuff and of them dying, because it's just unthinkable.

    So, if a son or daughter doesn't love their parents the way most people love their own, it might suggest that there will be no inheritance because the relationship between the parents and their child is not a good one.  I had an elderly friend who knew her kids and grandchildren were "waiting" for their "inheritance", so she donated a bunch of her money to things like animal causes and made sure nobody but two very close and caring family members got any of her money.

    There is no "should" when it comes to whether someone eventually inherits anything from his parents or anyone else.

    I'd suggest grown children get their minds of what is not theirs and what they aren't necessarily entitled to and, instead, figure a way to earn their own money and belongings.  This is good advice because the world is full of parents who make good and sure their kids don't inherit anything at all.

    instead of waiting for parents to die, why dont you put your effort and learn the right way to accumulate wealth. if you do it correctly you can earn a fortune more than your parents. you can learn internet marketing, business and investing like buying stock and forex,commodities. you can also learn about how to buy property with no money down from guru like robert allen. just equip yourself with financial education and you will be leading to the road of wealth. go to seminar like anthony robbins, t harv eker, robert kiyosaki. investment is the road to wealth.

    When ever I come into a nice sum of money. i bless my children with a monetary gift righ away. I want to see them enjoy what God has provided me to bless them with now on Earth. They will also have an inheritance when I leave this Earth. Which I pray to God be a long time from now.
