The inheritor’s legal heirs are his or her first, second, and third class blood relatives, spouse, adopted children, and the state.Assigned heirs, on the other hand, consist of the people who are designated as heirs in the testator’s will. In order for these people to be heirs, they must also meet the conditions of being full and alive, being alive, benefiting from civil rights and being an heir.
How Is Inheritance Shared?
If the deceased has a legally regulated testamentary disposition, the inheritance is arranged according to this document. In the absence of such a testamentary disposition, the distribution is made in proportion to the legal shares, according to the procedures in Turkish civil law.
While making this share, it is taken into account which persons are the holders of hidden shares and the ratios of these persons’ hidden shares.
How do you create a legally valid testamentary disposition?
There are two types of testamentary disposition in the law. These are wills and inheritance contracts.
