Question: How Do I Will My Bangkok Property To My Beneficiaries?
You will need to create a Will to pass the property to your intended beneficiaries. For the Will to be valid, it has to be drafted in accordance with the Thai Laws, or else you run the risk of having the Will nulled and voided. When that happens, your assets will be distributed in accordance with the intestate succession act. Probate will come in and it is a very expensive and lengthy process.
As such, we strongly recommend that you have a Will in place for your property and consider engaging a competent lawyer in Bangkok. The Will once drafted needs to be lodged with the District Office in Bangkok.
For our clients, we will assist them with the drafting and lodging of the Will in Thailand.
