Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In French law, one can't repudiate children. 50% of the shares of the SCI will still go to the children.

Actually it is more complicated in case of joint ownership : surviving spouse gets usufruit, right to use the property until s/he dies, whereas the children get the naked property.

Which is then not an issue because both spouses are dead - but if a surviving spouse has a partner what happens there?  Can the shares be transferred to the non bloodline partner on death of the remaining original spouse?

In swedish law children has the right to (at least) 50% of the inheritance, divided equally. For example, if you are one of four children you have the right to at least 12.5%, while if you have only one sibling, 25% will be yours for sure.

Surviving spouse has the right to "unmoved living" (orört bo), which puts a lower limit on how little she (or he, though it is more common that men die first) can be left with. The rest will then be inherited upon the surviving spouses death.

It gets really complicated when you have children who share only one parent.
