  1. True but sometimes the judge will have a different opinion. Under section 1735 CCC Thailand all debts and creditors must be paid from the estate first and this doesn’t always happen.
    This money is from moveable assets ie the cash in the bank. Later to satisfy other debts or creditors immovable assets ie condo or house may be sold and the former paid. Again this does not always happen.

    Sometimes this does not happen and the cash is basically froze, as there is a dispute about the Beneficiaries and the debts to be paid and how they should be paid.

    The law is specific in that Section 1739 states that the Executor or the Administrator of the Will, paragraph 6, is to be paid from the cash. Again this does not always happen.

    Basically, the Beneficiaries get whats left, however in some cases, they will keep the case open in the hope of getting things their way, regardless of the law it becomes a compromise so that everyone can move on and settle the estate.
