You need a Will Testament in Thailand.
As without one it can become a real issue for those left to arrange everything.
Making a Will is easy and not expensive. However for some reason more than half of people do not have one. It doesn’t matter how old you are or your health as things happen and unexpectedly too.
Most don’t understand the words I have used above let alone their how they work in a legal World.
Will Testament and the Law
Thai888 Law has designed a checklist for you so that you can understand who else is involved in your Will Testament. Of course there is you (Testator), what do you own (assets or estate (including your body), who you want to leave certain things to (Beneficiaries), who to contact (Next of Kin NOK) and who you want to manage everything after you die (Executor) as they need to take the matter to court (Probate).
Most documents are in Thai Language and most times these need to be translated. Sometimes, if documents need to be used in another country this needs to be done at a Consulate and then signed off by the Minister of Foreign Affairs. All Wills and the Executor must go to court to be given a court order (Grant of Probate) and with this document you can close bank accounts, sell/transfer land condo or house, transfer car or motorbike, send money overseas, collect insurance.
