How do I register a Thai will?


Recommended Posts

Can anybody advise on how I go about registering a Thai will?

The company that did the translating into Thai tell me that if I have a Thai wife, which I don’t, we can both go to City Hall on Pattaya Nua and register the document, otherwise I have to use a lawyer.  This doesn’t sound right, somehow.

Do I go to the Amphur, which Maps tells me is in Naklua?

Thanks.

Talking of wills, and please I am not trying to hi-jack your thread. But If I have a will in my own country is this invalid in the LOS, do I need to make a new one?

It is something that has completely slipped my mind and your thread has made me realise this is something I will need to sort in the future.

In general you are best placed to make one here in Thailand if your assets are here. It will be in both languages x 3 copies one kept sealed at the lawyers and you get 2 or 3 this you can ask.

The main thing to consider besides the cost of about 10k THB is the naming of the Executor here of the will if you let the lawyer do it they take a % value of the estate I think was mentioned 5%.

I think its best that you ask them further about what you can do? I think they're just trying to know whether or not you have a Thai family that will be benefited by the will.

You don't have to "register" it at all.

Make the will and ensure whoever you have asked to execute it is happy to do so and knows where it is or even better has a copy. As long as it has been written/witnessed correctly and is only for your assets in Thailand the executor should be able to sort it out although he may have to hire a Thai lawyer to go to probate.

Good threads on thai visa but with some conflicting info on storing a will at the Amphur.
