How Does Thai Inheritance Law and Probate in Thailand Work?

Probate of an estate can be interpreted as an executor that supervises a person’s property and possessions after the individual has passed away. Thailand doesn’t actually have any formal probate proceedings or a probate court.

But, under Thai law, if a person dies without leaving a will, an administrator for the deceased individual’s estate will be appointed and this can be a public prosecutor, an interested person, or an heir. Thai inheritance law states under section 1629 of the Civil and Commercial Code, six classes of statutory heirs can inherit an estate in this order. Descendants, parents, full-blood brothers and sisters, half-blood brothers and sisters, grandparents, aunts, and uncles.

Foreign Wills In Thailand

Inheritance dispute lawyers can become critical when it comes to foreigners receiving an inheritance in Thailand. Section 1639 of the Code, states that foreign nationals can inherit from a Thai spouse who is a Thai national and can also inherit property under clause 93 of the Land Code. There are caveats to this though and we highly recommend speaking with an estate probate attorney at our Bangkok-based Thailand inheritance law firm.

There have been many occasions where a probate litigation attorney witnesses issues concerning foreign nationals and their last will and testament arise in the Thai court system. Our probate lawyers in Bangkok see foreigners using the judgment of the foreign court systems to pursue a case. Under inheritance law in Thailand, a judgment made by any foreign court is not enforceable in the Thai court system, although the foreign court findings can be used as evidence by a will and probate attorney.

To get a property transferred after the death of an individual in Thailand, inheritance lawyers are required to procure a probate order from the Thailand Probate Court. Property transfer in Thailand is completed either by a will or intestate succession upon the death of a person. ViZe Counselor strongly advises that an inheritance lawyer or wills solicitors are engaged during these processes as they are often complicated and stressful during what can already be a difficult period.
