The Law in Turkey Always a Good Idea to Make a Turkish Will
While you are enjoying your new home and life in Turkey , it is understandable that you might not want to think too long and hard about the future, particularly about matters pertaining to your will and inheritance. However, the sooner you consider your Turkish inheritance law options, the better you understand them, and the easier the procedure becomes.
Turkish Inheritance Law Implications… and Scenarios
If you are a non-resident property owner in Turkey and you pass away without making a Turkish will, your estate will be distributed according to the Turkish Inheritance Law.
These laws are fair and sensible, but it is worth understanding the implications…
A man who dies leaving three children and a spouse, who owns just the one property where the wife is included in the title deeds as the half-owner, leaves 50 per cent of the property to her. The other half is divided equally between the three children. The title deed will then be amended accordingly to show the four names (the wife owning half, each child owning one-sixth). The widow can hold a “usufruct” of the children’s share until she dies, so they cannot force through a sale (well, they can, but the wife is entitled to live there until she passes away).
In this scenario, in accordance with Turkish inheritance law, all parties must agree and sign the deeds if the house is to be sold. Because the husband didn’t make a will, the nuanced hierarchies of the Turkish legal system come into play, and the procedure can be time-consuming, expensive and divisive.
