Inheritance Laws and Wills

The law in Turkey for Inheritance and Wills differ vastly, spouses and blood relatives automatically inherit any assets, this is the reason that many Turkish people do not make wills.  If you have made a will in your own country for assets in Turkey it can only override the inheritance laws if approved by a judge.  We highly recommend that you have a will organized in Turkey so that it is straightforward and you can pass your assets onto your loved ones.

 

Another reason that entices foreign buyers to buy property in Turkey is the inheritance law.  There is no inheritance tax in Turkey so property investments are becoming more popular year after year.  To find out more about this we would recommend that you seek independent advice from a lawyer as everybody’s situation and personal circumstances are different and can change the process and the outcome.  The British Consulate General in Istanbul has prepared a list of English speaking approved lawyers that will be able to offer help and assistance.
