Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good day your question has been forwarded to me to see if I may be of assistance.
I am a UK trained lawyer and I am not aware of the laws in Germany. I would recommend that you speak to someone in Germany to confirm.
Generally though, where a person dies without a will, the law prescribes who is able to deal with their estate. Usually that person is a family member. You would not therefore be able to ask this close family friend to deal with the issue although there seems to be no question as to their competence.
Hope I clarified things for you. Kindly let me know if I may be of further assistance.
