Re: Will regarding Property in Turkey

I was als shocked about this, asked the judged why he ignored the official will done at the notary public in turkey! His answer was that there is no legal rule that allows people with a will to take the real estate or money. It is alsways shared with the proofed and accepted family members. FYI
I would have thought that was an inevitable outcome of perusing a Turkish will through the Turkish courts, and the reason as a UK citizen I shall not be making a Turkish will.
