What is Inheritance & Succession?

Inheritance and Succession in Thailand pertain to the legal processes and regulations governing the transfer of assets and property rights upon an individual’s death. This includes the distribution of assets among heirs according to statutory laws or the provisions of a valid will.

In Thailand, statutory heirs are outlined in the Civil and Commercial Code, determining inheritance order without a will. Estate administration involves heirs serving as Estate Administrators or appointing non-heirs with court approval to ensure compliance with legal procedures. Drafting a will is crucial for asset distribution according to preferences, with various types recognized under Thai law. Witness eligibility and legal restrictions maintain the will’s integrity and validity.

Key things to consider

Appointing an estate administrator is crucial for effective asset protection. This process typically requires court approval or adherence to provisions specified in the deceased’s will. Ensuring compliance with statutory laws and legal procedures is paramount to uphold the validity and enforceability of inheritance arrangements. Additionally, understanding the various types of wills recognized under the law and their respective requirements is essential for proper estate planning and asset distribution. By navigating these processes diligently, individuals can safeguard their assets and ensure their wishes are carried out in accordance with legal regulations.

Additional Information:

  1. Inheritance laws concerning specific assets, such as company shares, lease contracts, land, and apartments, entail complex legal considerations, necessitating expert legal guidance.
  2. Foreigners inheriting land in Thailand must comply with legal restrictions and procedures, including obtaining permission from the Minister of the Interior.
  3. While a foreign will may suffice in some cases, circumstances such as Thai national spouses or specific real estate assets may warrant the creation of a separate Thai will for comprehensive estate planning.
  4. Court intervention may be necessary to address disputes or instances of dishonesty in managing and distributing estate assets.
