Probate & Inheritance Law Antalya, Turkey

In Turkey, whether the deceased left a will or not, the heirs must first obtain an inheritance certificate from the courts to inherit the deceased’s estate. An inheritance certificate is a court decision stating the heirs of the deceased and their shares of the estate. To get that decision, you must provide certificates from the dead’s country and the heirs with Apostilles. (An Apostille is a form of authentication issued from the country where the certificate was issued.)

The heirs cannot sell or transfer the estate of the deceased before the estate is transferred in their name. Also, the inheritance tax must be paid to sell or to transfer the inherited estate.

If the deceased did not leave a will, the judge will decide that the movables of the deceased shall be distributed according to the dead’s national law. According to Turkish Law, the immovable of the deceased will be distributed within the legal heirs.
