How do I make a Will Thailand

Abroad Funerals Pattaya takes the worry and stress out

You need a Will Testament in Thailand.

As without one it can become a real issue for those left to arrange everything.

Making a Will is easy and not expensive. However for some reason more than half of people do not have one. It doesn’t matter how old you are or your health as things happen and unexpectedly too.

Most don’t understand the words I have used above let alone their how they work in a legal World.

Will Testament and the Law

Thai888 Law has designed a checklist for you so that you can understand who else is involved in your Will Testament. Of course there is you (Testator), what do you own (assets or estate (including your body), who you want to leave certain things to (Beneficiaries), who to contact (Next of Kin NOK) and who you want to manage everything after you die (Executor) as they need to take the matter to court (Probate).

Thai Language

Most documents are in Thai Language and most times these need to be translated. Sometimes, if documents need to be used in another country this needs to be done at a Consulate and then signed off by the Minister of Foreign Affairs. All Wills and the Executor must go to court to be given a court order (Grant of Probate) and with this document you can close bank accounts, sell/transfer land condo or house, transfer car or motorbike, send money overseas, collect insurance.

Review

SepiaTechnique a year ago     "I was absolutely distraught at the thought of having to deal with my fathers funeral in Thailand, And I only had one week to get things sorted as I had to return to UK and my work! I didn't speak the language or know the law but Kelvin at thai888 law, was the most patient, kind and knowledgeable person who speaks English as well as having the benefits of his working partner being Thai, proved to be the most effective team going. I cannot recommend their services highly enough. Carrie"

Emotions aside

I think Carrie's review sums it up perfectly. This emotional time when things need to be done and you're in the wrong space. It is a very legal process starting with the Embassy needing a document from the blood relative to release a letter to Abroad Funerals to start the funeral process.

English or Thai Language

Apart from everything being in Thai language you will need to be very patient with the locals as things are done differently in Thailand.

Alzheimer’s or just getting old Thai888 Law Funeral

I tend to forget sometimes that I am dealing with real living people and their emotions and bodies. Making a Will or enforcing a Living Will after doing it hundreds of times makes it sometimes impersonal and robot-like. After all, it is a legal document. But for some they want their legacy to live on through a charity or helping their Thai partner, their family or sometimes even the gardener or the cook.

When a Will is made it normally stats that the person making it is of sound mind. However, my experience lately is that some of my clients have or are developing Alziemers. These people are elderly and living alone.

Alzheimer’s is a dreadful decease and most debilitating. And the worst is that each day it shows and the person forgets many things, even why they are in my office.

The disease gets to a point where the person needs 24-hour care. Care that is not really available in Thailand and so the person takes whatever assistance they can get. Someone to just be there in case.

The carer may mean well but they have no experience in looking after someone with Alzheimer’s. None.

I am not saying this of all carers but one client has an awful lot of money missing from their account. The carer was given the PIN number and access as sometimes the client cannot get out of bed and needs supplies. Each day several withdrawals have been made.

A lot of trust is needed here. It’s not easy and what else can one do in this situation?

If you know someone in this position then get them to make a Will whilst they are still competent.

Also, try to make them understand that someone needs to look after their accounts, someone trustworthy.

If the person has a large estate or more than 2 bank accounts, get them to start reducing all things down to a manageable size. 2 bank books – 1 fixed interest and the other day to day should be enough. And don’t forget the 800K in the bank for Immigration. And to go every 90 days and to apply for your visa every 12 months.

Not easy when you can’t remember much at all.

I did not ever expect this to be part of my job. However, I can help in a few ways. I am the controller of property for may clients, meaning that should something happen I can control the asset if it is for a person under 20 years old.

I can help if you have a Living Will or the Last Will and I am the Executor.

I cannot help if you have nothing in place and no next of kin.

Therefore I ask you to make a Will and make sure that a trusted 3rd party has your access codes and PIN numbers – and I don’t mean the gardener or the cook as the temptation is too great.

Please act on this before its too late. info@thai888.com

Galloper, Funeral, Pattaya, Probate, Insurance, Thai888 Law

A tough time for all involved and particularly as Gordon Halpin AKA “Galloper” and his wife Judy were friend of over 8 years.

As friends, we assisted from the beginning at the hospital, with the insurance company from Australia, the Police, and used Thai888 Law to arrange the funeral, cremation, insurance claim, and Probate. It was a very big day and thanks to all our staff and friends for making it so.

Here is the funeral of a big day for big Mr G at 6 foot 6 inches tall.
