Re: Turkish Inheritence Law

Or put the tapu in your son's name with the proviso that he gives your husband a share when sold if you die first?

The son could then sell the house during her lifetime if he so wished.

. . . not only that, if he is a UK citizen and under 18 someone has to sign on his behalf for everything. If not his main residence he will be liable for UK capital gains tax on the sale of the property.
If he marries and later divorces the property will be included in any share-out of assets.
Stick with Yildiz' advice, keep your things yours. A Turkish husband likes an English wife with her own income. . .

Re: Turkish Inheritence Law

Sorry for the late response, I didn't have notifications turned on and have had a lot on!

Keeping my UK property is not a long-term option.
When I sell it I will split the money 50/50 between myself and my son.
Once that is done (and I buy a property here) I will have only my name on the Tapu. If I die first my son would then get 75% and my husband 25%
once the property is sold, if I've got that right?

. . . . not from where I'm standing!

You could put the capital into a UK bond with life cover and put that in trust for your son. No-one could touch it and on your death it would be paid out directly to the beneficiary without appearing in your will, because it would not be part of your estate.It is treated as a life policy, not an investment.
Only drawback is that it could be difficult for you to access it in your lifetime.
I suggest that if there is much money involved you should get professional advice from a UK registered financial planner. check the Financial Conduct Authority website for details of one near you.

There is updated information (2017) about inheriting in Turkey from abroad on the Turkish consulate website, among other topics. I tried to access to copy but it's down today. This is the link, and there's a list of questions, to click on, including wills and inheritance. Their explanation chimes with a friend's experience.

www.turkishconsulate.org.uk

good luck.

Re: Turkish Inheritence Law

Thank you Kanga, I'll check that link out.

The reason for giving my son his 50% after selling is to help him get his own place by buying or put into some sort of trust if he wants to carry on renting until he's ready. I won't just give it to him though, it'd be gone in a month! ;-)
