An inheritance, legacy or donation which accrues to a spouse during the subsistence of the marriage, except in so far as the spouses may agree otherwise in their antenuptial contract or in so far as the testator/trix or donor may stipulate otherwise, as well as any other asset which has been acquired by the spouse by virtue of his/her possession or former possession of the inheritance, legacy or donation are not taken into account in determining their respective accruals (are not included in the nett value of estate assets).
However, the profits from the sale of the communal home will be taken into account when the calculation is made to determine the accrual. Such profit can be regarded as an enrichment.
