Inheritance Law & Wills in TURKEY
Do you have a foreign deceased in Turkey who had moveable or immovable property? According to Law, immovables are subject to Turkish Law. The ‘heirs’ of a deceased person are the spouse and the kids. If the deceased person left no descendants, the parents, as second-in-line heirs, will inherit the estate. The inheritance rights of descendants will devolve to their own descendants if any of the former is no longer alive when the inheritance takes place. The spouse gets 1/4 of the estate if he/she is an heir with the children. And he/she gets half of the estate if he/she is an heir with the parents of the deceased. For moveables like money, the deceased country’s law is applied in Turkey.
