Art. 897. Ascendant's right to inherit immovables donated to descendant

            Ascendants, to the exclusion of all others, inherit the immovables given by them to their children or their descendants of a more remote degree who died without descendants, when these objects are found in the succession.

            If these objects have been alienated, and the price is yet due in whole or in part, the ascendants have the right to receive the price. They also succeed to the right of reversion on the happening of any event which the child or descendant may have inserted as a condition in his favor in disposing of those objects.

            Acts 1981, No. 919, §1, eff. Jan. 1, 1982; Acts 2020, No. 19, §1.
