This week Probate was finished for a man that died in Chiang Mai. I flew up with the team a few months back and gave testimony in the court as the children did not want to come to Thailand to administer the estate.
The Judge was most accommodating and allowed the children ( the Beneficiaries ) to resign and then appoint me as the Executor.
There were several cases on the ticket that morning and Thai888 Law was number 7. However, the Judge bumped our case and so we were number 1.
There was very little to the estate and it was not complicated. However, the bank account could not be closed until we had a court order.
Thai888 put everything in place and arranged for the bank (after signing several forms) to post a check to my bank.
After this was cleared I arranged for my bank to pay the 3 Beneficiaries – again many forms as the money was leaving Thailand and under the money laundering act we need all sorts of clearances.
