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.

I don’t know about registering the will at the AMPHUR in Banglamung but I have mine done and held by Magna Carta.

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%.
