Re: Worried

Put it in joint names. Cannot think there is any reason not to. Ask whoever is giving this advice why.
Turkish inheritance law for property is totally different than the UK. You should check it out if you are worried about what happens when one or both of you die. I think it is split between partner and children but you should check it yourself before you go ahead. As far as I know U.K. will does not change Turkish inheritance laws.

Re: Worried

Not sure if people have come across this, its what I have heard.

Those who are divorced or widow(s) should have the relevant papers available ie divorce papers, death certificates & the like as proof.
I was also told (by a lawyer), if you wish to exclude an offspring from the Will, the simplest way to do it is to leave a "token gesture bequest" (couple of hundred £s). That action severely weakens a claimants case. Why would people omit someone from a Will?
In this case, the people making the Will had a drug addict son, they knew that giving money to him, would be his death.

Re: Worried

I would definitely go for joint ownership or when one of you dies the other won't own much of your house. At least you'd have your 50% and a quarter of the other 50%.

Re: Worried

No matter what you say in your will the Turkish laws of Inheritance will over rule your will.

You cannot pick and choose between your offspring all get the same.

Re: Worried

If you make a Will, remember to include a clause that states that your Turkish Will, will in in anyway over rule your UK Will.

The Turkish Will is to cover the Im-movable Estate in Turkey. Your Uk Will covers anything else in Turkey

Hi

I am just talking my own very recent experience in Turkey .
I bought just a couple of months ago .
We have been together 12 plus years ( though it feels longer but that's another story lol) .
We are not married and both have grown up kids (2 each ) .
We put it in joint names as advised as we are joint .

We are yet to do a will and will adress this within the next visit or so.
It was explained in reference to inheritance and I have read up but it has not changed for me we are joint and the purchase should be in joint names .
The nice thought for me is now to try and get half the purchase price off my other half lol.

We had owned before in North Cyprus which is similar system and this was the same joint names ,we bought and sold then the same way .
The will we did ourselves from a template and registered this at the court ourselves ,

Re: Worried

And another thing - if you have joint bank accounts in Turkey and if one of you dies please don't inform the back as your account will be frozen. Instead, take out the money gradually, leaving a little in there to keep the account open, if you wish to. We were told this by a bank manager when we opened our account some years ago.
