The elderly woman, who died in 2011, left behind a number of properties, including a residential apartment she purchased from Amidar, after living there for decades on a key fee.

This apartment was the rock of controversy in the family dispute.

According to the lawsuit, the granddaughter took over her late grandmother's apartment in Tel Aviv, valued at an estimated NIS 4 million, changed locks and prevented the son from entering the apartment.

When the other heirs applied to the granddaughter to vacate the apartment, she replied that she had received the apartment as a gift from her grandmother - and even presented them with a gift agreement, as well as a registration in the registry office that the apartment had been transferred to her.



In their distress the old woman's heirs appealed to the attorney Amber heart, which is presented to the court a long line of evidence and documents that raise the suspicion of unlawful behavior granddaughter and grandmother - whose sole purpose was to sell the apartment and legally avoid paying taxes.



Attorney Lev presented a The lawsuit contained two sales agreements for the apartment between the granddaughter and her grandmother, in one of which the sale amount was NIS 1 million, and in the other NIS 400,000.

Both agreements were not implemented.

In addition, affidavits signed by the granddaughter and her grandmother were presented to the court, according to which the apartment was given to her granddaughter as a gift.



According to Adv. Lev, the granddaughter hid from her family and the authorities the fact that on the day the gift affidavits were signed, she also signed a debt statement - a statement that was also presented to the court, according to which the granddaughter undertakes to transfer NIS 350,000 to her grandmother. In a gift transaction between family members - a transaction that is not taxable. Nevertheless, this time too the granddaughter did not transfer any payment to her grandmother. In her defense in this matter, the granddaughter claimed that her signature on the debt statement was forged.

In court, the granddaughter found it difficult to explain the discrepancy between the gift affidavits and the commitment to pay she signed, nor did she present any evidence that she transferred money to her late grandmother.

As a result, the family court ruled that the deceased sold the apartment to her granddaughter in exchange for a monetary payment, but since she did not pay for it, the apartment does not belong to her, but is part of the deceased's estate.



The granddaughter appealed the ruling to the Tel Aviv District Court, which in the composition of the three judges - Shaul Shochat, Einat Ravid and Naftali Shilo - ruled that there was no justification to interfere with the factual rulings of the Family Court.



The district court judges ruled in their recent ruling that the granddaughter's testimony revealed quite a few inconsistencies, and that she had difficulty proving her claim that her signature on the letter of commitment was forged, and that this claim was not included in her defense at all. "The appellants



found in the fact that the rights in the apartment were transferred to the granddaughter's name only after her grandmother died." The conclusion is that her mother was

given the apartment without compensation, and the gift affidavits were signed for tax reasons only, "the judges ruled.

"She agreed to transfer to the appellant her rights in the apartment only against consideration, which was not paid at all by the appellant, and the deceased had no intention of transferring the apartment to her as a gift," the district court judges ruled that the apartment is part of the deceased's estate and will be divided equally among her heirs.

The decision was allowed to be published subject to concealment of the details of those involved.
