I just finished watching a short video on making a Last Will and Testaments and frankly I was a little confused by the jargon used, and so i think most of you would be confused as well. This is my job full time at Thai888 Law and so I hope to take any confusion out.
I live and work in the Pattaya area and know many people that have businesses, family and overseas assets that they want to protect should something happen to them.
Many people call and say its a simple Will and shouldn’t take to long or complicate things. It usually takes a few days to draft something for you and then after you’re OK it then we print it for you to sign. Most of the time things go well and occasionally not so well as if the Will is badly written there could be court cases later
What could legally go wrong
For a start trying to write your own Will is OK but what if you miss a word or a phrase or signature. This opens the door to court action later.
I did a talk at the Pattaya Expats Club (PEC) and the Pattaya City Expats Club (PCEC), in fact many talks, about Murphy’s Law and this is simply “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”. But if the Will is properly written then chances are if it goes to court you will win.
The most important person in the Will
This would have to be the Executor as they are the managers of the Will after you die. They need to take the Will to court and give testimony to say they are a fit and proper person to manage the Will. This person in order to get to court has to apply through a Lawyer and the Lawyer gets a court date for them. They appear in Court and normally the judge gives them the power to go to the bank and close the accounts, go to the land office and change the name on the Chanote (Title Deed), sell the cars and bikes, pay the bills and donate items to charity. There is a lot of work and all the docs require a legal person, plus someone that speaks, reads and writes Thai. At Thai888 Law Company we have 2 offices set aside for this and have made Wills for 100’s of people from all over the World and in different languages.
World wide assets
Definitely DONT put this in your Will as there are something you need to talk to me about before you do. There are different laws around the World and so you don’t want the lawyers fighting over whos law to follow. There are tax issues as well. email me or call email@example.com Your assets if in Thailand don’t need to be mixed up with other countries issues.
Revoke other Wills
Another DONT, as if you have any property in another country, and a Will to cover it and it says revokes (takes away its power) all other Wills and Codicils (additions) then these maybe used to cause an issue in the courts, and the winners will be the Lawyers, Solicitors, tax man.
You dont need to pay big money for a Will
Thai888 Law has been making low cost, very affordable Wills for the Expat community for many years and our reputation for fairness is well known. Ask around and you will find our Wills and service very competitive. We have even been praised by the Australian Lawyers society for our bench make excellence and being able to Notarise the document for Australian Courts.
Staff at Thai888 Law speak, read and write Thai and English
Our staff work with you until you are satisfied with your Will in Thai and English. Once you approve the documents, we print, you come into sign in front of our 2 legal staff and a picture of you is taken. This proves that you were competent (in a healthy frame of mind and were not forced to make the Will) as later on your Will has to go to court and the Judge can see the picture.
First of all send me an email and I will send you a checklist of what docs we need to draw up and translate the Will. The checklist covers your property, who is the next of kin (NOK), who gets the property in your Will (Beneficiary), and who is the manager (Executor) of your Will, who to contact in Thailand and in your home country, your Embassy. All names, addresses and contacts are included and of course should something happen to any of the above, we list alternative people (this makes the Executors job easier) as well.
Making your friend the Executor
This might seem like and honor to nominate your friend however, its a lot of work and a lawyer has to be involved too, and in most cases they will resign from the role as they don’t have the knowledge or language to deal with these government departments. Resigning is another step in the court process and not necessary if you write the Will properly in the first instance.
Registering the Will
This is no longer necessary. You will receive a signed copy of the Will and the other goes to the Executor. Keep then in a safe place. We can scan your signed Will and send to other people involved.
Executor of the Will
I have heard people at the various clubs say the Lawyers acting as the Executors steal all the assets. I understand the Law and there are approx 66 of them that are concerned with the Will, the Executor, the Beneficiaries and the assets and so it is not easy to steal anything. There is a solution to this and so have a co Executor. As, in some cases the other co executor is over seas and cannot come to the court case in Thailand and the other Executor can act for them. Under Thai Law these people are responsible for each other.
Thai888 Law has another company called Abroad Funerals and together we can arrange everything from making the Will, the funeral, Court and sending the properties back to the people in your Will. No more running from company to company as we do everything, saving you time and money. AND all in English.
Thai888 Law has the experienced staff and reviews to make your Will properly. We have a full time Australian probate officer, that deals with Probate & Will issues all over the World. So call us for professional advise, as you never know and its always best to be prepared. Lastly you don’t want to government to get your hard earned property.
Thailand is still going through the slow grinding process of trying to open up to overseas travels after Covid. Everyday there is another story or plan, and in the meantime business are going bankrupt of are closing for good. Thai888 Law does the accounts for many businesses and its not pretty. Many of our good friends have packed up and gone home and some cannot return due to quarantine or insurance standard they cannot meet.
How can Thai888 Law help
Here are some of the issues we are working on at the moment. Buy and sell contracts when the seller cannot fly into Thailand. Friend of family member dies and family doesn’t know where to start with the red tape, Police, Embassy, Hospitals, Insurance, Funeral. Company accounts all due now and if you don’t pay you will be fined. Common fees on properties are due and we can pay them. Living Wills and Last Wills for planning ahead. Applying to the courts for the estate after you have passed away. Locally, some are still getting fined for overstaying their visas, opening bars outside of hours, accidents. And in these cases we can assist you.
Covid and the Courts
In some respects there has been some advantage as people cannot fly in without quarantine and so a Power of Attorney (POA) can be arranged and I or a member of Thai888 Law can represent you in court. Before the Judge would not allow this, however now, if the documents are in order then it is possible for us to go to court and get a grant without you leaving home. The savings are enormous as there are no airfares, hotel costs, quarantine costs and you’re in a non English speaking country and all docs are in Thai, therefore more costs for translators and interpreters.
There are many reasons to contact Thai888 Law
You can call us free on WhatsApp, Messenger, LINE, SKYPE and so please do, or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Our staff are qualified and have all the answers you will need and in English
Thai888 Law started off as a small business venture has now become 2 companies working together under the same management to streamline the legal issues that come with a foreigner passing away in Thailand. This allows clients to make 1 phone call to arrange all things to do with hospitals police morgue funeral embassy court probate. This unique model has evolved over many years as Thai888 Law began with 1 rented office and 1 staff member. Now our 2 offices has qualified legal and accounting staff that completed their degrees whilst working for Thai888.
Many of our clients living in Thailand make Living and Last Wills with us and unfortunately many pass away and in the old days we would outsource the funeral to Monkhouse Funerals. Various problems ensued with this system and to better manage this we registered Abroad Funerals Pattaya. With side by side offices we can arrange and manage everything all the way through to court grants and sending the assets back to the families. No other company does this in Thailand and reviews on our website show 5 stars and thankful messagesfrom clients that also became friends during these stressful times.
Thai888 Law began with criminal, civil, company, consumer and family LAW and now we have several experts to focus your enquiries. If you like its a one stop for all your needs and our fees are on the lower side.
Our CEO is an Australian and speaks English and has international experience with many countries and their probate laws.
An in house Notary service for when countries require you sign docs in front of a Lawyer is available. We have 2 offices and 12 qualified staff, our offices are easily access as there is handicapped parking and ramps. We hope to see you soon. email@example.com
Department of Business Development DBD, Tax, Dual Tax, Company accounts, Notary, Probate, Family Law, Immigration issues, due diligence on buying or selling land, condos, houses, contracts, all matters to do with the Law
Thai888 Law has 2 offices and are still open during the pandemic. Office 12 is for all legal matters and office 10 is for Wills and Probate issues
My work is made simple as Thai888 Law and Abroad Funerals has qualified staff to do the work for you. Corona has made it difficult in some ways.
We have in house qualified Lawyers, Funeral staff, Embassy contacts, police, hospital contacts and can arrange the cremation funeral repatriation by our own Abroad Funerals Company.
Corona Virus has destroyed 1000’s of businesses and peoples lives. For many months now many of our clients could not fly in to enjoy their condos, have a holiday, organise and attend a funeral for a friend or family member. It has been tragic and heart wrenching for many not being able to attend the farewell. Plus many pubs where people could meet for the “wake” were closed and so there were no stories and memories told.
Over the past year the families have asked me to do the speeches at the funeral cremation ceremony. Family and friends would send me emails of there friends life and funny times for me to read. My staff checked temperatures and wore masks and had the chairs spaced apart as per the law. As family and friends could not attend we did live video streaming and their reaction / feedback was wonderful (although there were up to 12 hours time differences). At least the family could see the farewell, the beauty of Thai temples that did the ceremony, the monks chanting and the water ceremony. On some occasions we even had Thai traditional dancing.
The main thing is that all can be arranged through us with a few calls and now with WhatsApp, Skype, LINE, Messenger, we can talk about the families wishes and all for free. Also, sending documents we need instantly for the family to print sign, scan and send back to us, is such am incredible advancement in technology.
Probate is where Thai888 applies to the court to manage the estate of the deceased
Due to Covid the courts have been closed for some months now and this has delayed many court applications and decisions. Before we could wait 3 months to get a court date and now this maybe longer. If this is the case and I am the Executor of the Will I personally advance the money to the hospital and all other bills that come in as we cannot wait to make the funeral happen. In some cases the family will transfer the money to us to clear the bill so that we can get all the documents we need to allow the funeral to progress.
One thing I have noticed is that due to Covid the amount of documentarian needed has increased and so please use an Executor to manage your Will properly as otherwise settlement will be delayed. Thai888 can be your Executor and please don’t listen to urban myths about Lawyers stealing all the assets as there are many laws to protect the Will, the Executor, the estate and Beneficiaries.
All Wills and the Executor have to be cleared by the court by testimony and then the court gives a Grant of Probate to unwind the estate and sell things, transfer property, close bank accounts.
The courts have made this process easier as the Executor is normally required to attend court however with Covid and not being able to fly in a Power of Attorney (POA) may be used instead.
It is a very complicated matter with the Police release, Hospital release, Embassy, Consulate, Letter of Release, transport, temple, cremation certificate, City Hall Death Certificate, translation, return of ashes. And this is just for the cremation. Probate is another matter and so take it seriously and do it the right way to save any issues or someone contesting the Will or the Executor. www.thai888.com https://www.facebook.com/pcecclub.org/photos/3521702087950845
The Covid has stirred up many emotions and divided people like never before. However, whats behind this. Thai888 Law are interested in the legalities and not so much the politics. THE GERMAN CORONA INVESTIGATIVE COMMITTEE and LAWYER DR. REINER FUELLMICH (Youtube keeps blocking the video)
I said many months ago that the first was was Corona, the second wave is financial (yet to come) the third wave is psychological and this is cause by the first two, plus underlying illnesses.
Please view this in light of the Law and that no man is above it.
Legal action is also happening in UK, Australia, France and the USA and so be prepared to get an education as the defendants have to disclose all and answer all questions as a matter of record.
