German-Turkish cases of inheritance and the relation with the EU-Regulation on Succession

German-Turkish cases of inheritance could in theory also by governed by the EU Regulation on Succession was it not for the „traditional“ or „old“ Treaty on Consular Matters between the two states. The Treaty dates back to June 28 1929. 

According to this treaty the principle of „unity of estate“ does not apply in German-Turkish matters of inheritance. 

Rather this diplomatic document differentiates between movable and immovable property. As regards movable property the law of state whose national was the testator has to be applied. Whereas for immovable property the relevant law is that where the property is situated. 

In case you have an issue concerning a case of inheritance you can contact me here. I also cooperate with Turkish speaking colleagues, so the language problem could be solved.
